Jumping kanagaroos.....!!

This lead light, stained glass window is in the centre of the City on Padbury Walk looking through to Forrest Chase (which I guess you could call our Town Square), the building you can see directly through the window is the Commonwealth Post Office. I really like the vivid colours and the uniquely Australian content of this scene. If you pull the image in you'll see kangaroos, bandicoots , bilbys  and kingfishers in amongst the eucalyptus and grass trees. I have searched and failed to find the artist who designed this window, but whoever he is he did a fine job.

  1. It's a beauty for sure and made even better by your composition with the building and sky behind it.

  2. Excellent, Grace! In a way, this typifies how young your country is. No Renaissance scenes of the Last Supper. Rather, a modern kangaroo scene. Cool.

  3. It was Robert Juniper. When I had a gallery I was privileged to sell some of his work. Go see http://www.robertjuniper.com/
    I also lived in a rented unit of his. Such a nice guy. Just love this window for all to see.

  20. Wow. Wish we had some in Europe. Kangaroos AND kangaroos on stained glass. Would kind of brighten up many things and mentalities.

  21. This is definitely the most intriguing stained glass I have ever seen. And considering it's Aussie, it makes it even more interesting.
    I love the roo's, they're portrayed so differently than how the aboriginals draw them or paint them.

    No Koala's though :-(

    perfect photo!
