The short history of stained glass
Stained glass windows were recognized as a work of art as Christianity was spreading. What is more, exactly that fact made stained glass dominant art form of the new millennium. As a result, during many centuries, stained glass remained as a form of decoration used mainly in churches, cathedrals, opera houses, temples and other buildings connected with religion. Stained glass windows were of a high popularity in the times of Victorian Era. Back then, window flowers were a typical ornament. As the years were passing, many styles and designers of stained glass windows were changing. In the nineteenth century, the world found out about Louis Comfort Tiffany, who was known for receiving patents for new technics in glassmaking and who created opalescent stained glass. After that, many new stained glass images appeared, and stained glass itself started to spread across the houses on many continents of the globe.
The meaning a stained glass flower has
Stained glass pictures should not be concerned as a form of decoration only. Everyone should bear in mind that each stained window has its own meaning and symbolism. Floral patterns are not exception. Speaking about poppies it is important to mention that sometimes they are depicted with reference to the death of Jesus Christ. The image showing poppies on stained glass windows also means ignorance, apathy. Besides, it also signifies sleep. The connection between these two meanings of the same pattern is that Christ’s death represents sleep, and those, who condemned and crucified Christ stand for ignorance and apathy. For people who are advocates of Christianity, poppies work as a warning sign against wasting time, becoming lazy or indifferent.
Furthermore, poppies are not the only one kind of flowers to be seen on stained glass. To the most popular floral prints belong innocent daisies, wealthy peonies, lordly irises, virgin lilies and passionate rose. To be more precise, stained glass roses are said to symbolize love affection and bravery. Red roses are a symbol of passion, desire and true love. In addition, red roses have always been serving as a sign of respect and admiration for the object to which these flowers are intended. Moving further to daisies, they are quite frequently described as the Christ Child's innocence. Also, the white color of the petals represents love, tenderness and kindness, which is of a high importance for the younger generation.
