Cheltenham Minster Rose Window
Acrylic Gouache on Paper
Framed: 74 x 74cm
Signed by the Artist
Certificate of Authenticity


Cheltenham Minster is the only surviving medieval building in Cheltenham and is believed to have replaced a Saxon church in the 8th century. It has been in continuous use for 850 years. The rose window has been placed in the north transept and is positioned at an angle to show movement – a favourite design effect of the medieval craftsmen. The window was made by William Wales in 1879 whilst the tracery of the window dates from the medieval period. Its medieval design probably commemorates the death of Catherine of Alexandria, who may have been put to death on a spiked wheel. In the middle of this window is a lamb pierced with a sword. It’s a picture that represents the sacrifice Jesus made when he died on the cross so that we could be forgiven for the wrong things we do. The words in the eight panels surrounding the lamb come from Revelation, the last book of the Bible: “Worthy is the lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise” (Revelation chapter 5, verse 12).
