Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral - Rose Window


Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral - Rose Window

The magnificent rose window dominates the west front of the cathedral. C.W.Harrison of Dublin, using William Burges' design, carved the figures representing Matthew, Mark, Luke and John which surround the window.

The style of the carvings was influenced by the carvings of ancient Assyria which Burges had seen in the British Museum.
