Seller: dieterich6767 (76) 100%, Location: Minnetonka, Minnesota, Ships to: US, Item: 272444073726 I am offering a stained glass panel - Christ raising the dead into his glorious Kingdom - This is a one of a kind panel which can be installed into a designated window opening in a Church Sanctuary or free hung on chains in front of a large picture window in a home. Its dimensions are overall height 45" x 21 1/2" width, half radius at top 10 3/4" - spring line begins at 34 1/4" from bottom. The piece shown here is an example of fine western orthodox painting style with a liturgical theme. The work is created with handblown German antique glass using black out line paint, silver stain painting and patina painted applications. - Faces, hands, feet and robes on all figures are painted as contour lines with some shadow patina to create depth to the various faces, hands, feet and robes. The same goes for the background rocks and open tombs. The golden Halo around the Christ is silver stained glass with white Rays. In the blue background directly on Christ Body the rays are etched out of blue glass and silver stained. Every painting process is fired onto the glass. After completing the painting of the figures and scenery the entire glass panel is covered with patina paint and again fired in a kiln. The reason for covering the entire picture with patina is to achieve a painterly quality of the work.The narrow border is unpainted to separate and emphasize the center portion of the work. This fine panel of stained glass art was fabricated by Master Craftsman Helmut Schardt formally of Long Island New York in 1975. It has been shown to prospective Church clients as example of work which they ordered. Additional questions are welcome, I will answer them a best to my knowledge.Note: The grit-type screen you see through the stained glass images is the screen from my window, it is not in the glass. In the near future I will install new images without the screen being seen. This stained glass panels weight is 32pounds and needs to be packed well for shipping. Cost for insured shipping via UPS or FedEx shall be $195.00 I will invoice before shipping to assure a correct shipping cost. This is the final price reduction I will make before taken the item of.
