The “Day of Creation” or “Four Seasons” window by Dr. Douglas Strachan

Two views, south transcept. The window is the only 20th century window in the church, given in memory of John Risk, a distillery owner, and his wife. It was completed just before the Second World War, and kept “sagely in storage” until 1946. 

The four corners show the seasons, while the central panel depicts the “Big Bang” theory of creation.

To my mind, the most beautiful window in the church, certainly the most unusual. This one’s for you, Randy Sewell!
