York Minster, East window

A wonderful composition of 1405-1408 by John Thornton of Coventry featuring the Creation (27 panels) and Revelation (81 panels) - the first and last books in the Bible. There are 117 panels in the nine lights, plus 91 figured panels in the traceries.

(The window was being restored at the time of the photography and the stone tracery repaired. The panels below the upper transom with Revelation have now been restored and replaced.)
