Even in churches, Povey stained glass celebrates the spirit-force that is nature.
Reputed to be "Tiffany of the Northwest," Povey Brothers stained glass can be found throughout Portland.
Afterwards, to see more Povey stained glass, I strolled to First Christian Church, but could not get inside because it was locked up tight.
So I paused to assess a series of stained glass windows just below eye level, from outside, and though it didn't seem worth taking photos, I snapped just one, a close-up of a shepherd in the larger mosaic.
After arriving home, I uploaded the photos of Povey stained glass from my camera to my laptop, including the pic from First Christian...
This photo inexplicably depicts a clear-as-day traditional Christ-like image (and, no, it is not photo-shopped, a program I don't possess and never use).
Had it been there and I missed seeing it?
I am certain not. It was a blank orange piece within the leaded mosaic.
