Stained Glass Craftmanship And Nature

The main entrance inside the Museum of Nature has stained glass depictions of nature above each of the doors. I have shown you one such example before. This one is from the westernmost door. I have to get in here again sometime soon. The last time I was inside was Canada Day, and it was insanely busy. I have to take you on a proper tour of the galleries.

  18. Beautiful stained glass. Such an artistry. My Mother did some beautiful stained glass. Lots of front door panels in and around Seattle. She had the touch. My brother played in a rock band back in the day--She made a window of him playing. I'll have to find it. MB
