Edward Burne-Jones Judgment Day stained glass window, Birmingham Cathedral

Actually, the figure in the sky that has caught the attention of this crowd is the Archangel Michael.

The scene is from one of the glorious stained-glass windows designed by Edward Burne-Jones for the Cathedral Church of St Philip, Birmingham, UK. Specifically, it’s from the window illustrating Judgement Day, so it seems a good picture for the last day in the Mayan long calendar.

If you’re still around to want more information about the windows, you’ll find that, and more about the Industrial Revolution in the West Midlands, over at the Revolutionary Players website.
