Summary

Description
English: New East window of St Martin's in the Fields This new window was installed in 2008 as part of the renewal project http://www2.stmartin-in-the-fields.org/page/campaign/campaign.html . It is by the Iranian-born artist Shirazeh Houshiary. It depicts a cross as if seen reflected in water. The church's press release tells us:

"The ‘warp and weft’ design of the shot peened stainless steel framework or ‘cames’ evokes the agony of the Cross, whilst the central ellipse creates an icon of contemplation. It can be seen as the light at the centre of existence, the glory of God and of the light with which He illuminates our lives; or it can be seen as universal, transcending cultures. The ellipse echoes the architectural and decorative elements within the church such as the burst of gold declaring the glory of God in the sanctuary and the oval windows on either side."

"The glass, held within the stainless steel framework, is made of mouth blown clear glass panels etched on both sides with a subtle, feathery pattern, derived from Houshiary's paintings. The panels graduate from a periphery of more transparent glass to a denser, whiter centre. The ellipse itself is lightly etched, and lit in such a way as to stand out as a source of light. "

The photo was taken from the 2nd row of pews before the start of a Salvation Army carol service.
