Head of a King

This work is from a series relating to ‘Two Heads’, John Piper’s first work in stained glass
that was made as a trial panel for his first public stained glass project, the windows in
the Chapel at Oundle School in Northamptonshire, which were dedicated in May 1956, 
and unveiled by the Queen Mother. This particular work would, however, appear to 
be a king, rather than a head of Christ.
