Description

The Window of Old Testament is in St David’s Anglican Cathedral, Hobart. It was created by the firm Burlison and Grylls in London and installed in 1872. The window is made up of three lancet windows with a figure in each: King David, King Solomon, and King Hezekiah. King Solomon is dressed as a king of the late medieval period. In his right hand he holds a scale model of a Gothic church with a tower, spire, buttresses, and apse. Kings Solomon and Hezekiah also wear medieval-era crowns and swords. Below the each of the figures is a heraldic shield.
