Description

The Ashurst Memorial Window is in the west wall of 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: Adam, Moses, and Abel. Below the each of the figures are scenes relating to their lives – ‘The fall’, ‘Building the ark’, and ‘Cain and Abel’. These scenes are framed by a representation of delicate Gothic-style stonework features columns, arcading, pointed arches, and pointed finials.

Rev. F.H. Ashurst was a priest at Kingston, a town south of Hobart, who died in 1870.
