Stained Glass at St. Saviour's

St. Saviour's Episcopal Church here in Bar Harbor is famous for its stained glass windows. There are 10 windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany, and another dozen or so by less-well-known artists. I spent some time there last week taking in the details.
Look how beautifully this artist painted the feathers within each pane of colored glass.
The shading on her face is so delicate!

I love the expressions on the fishes' faces - the artist gave them human eyes and profiles, which makes them subtly disconcerting.
