For those of you who had seen my post on Corpus Christi, you might have thought that the Church of St. Anthony had some beautiful stained glass.
Haha. Not so. This is a poor rural parish, so, such extravagance is out of the question. Instead, it settled on the next best thing, high quality prints of some other Church's stained glass stuck onto the wall.
Fooled you eh?
What a brilliant idea, no? Thank you. I'm glad I thought of it. =) This idea made its début during the Penang Diocesan Golden Jubilee celebrations in the Penang International Sports Arena. I was among those entrusted with the design of the altar and decor and had the idea of making large prints of stained glass to give the arena a more Churchy feel.
Looks like it has made another appearance here, courtesy of Fr. Francis Xavier who was my parish priest during the Golden Jubilee celebrations. Don't like what's available on the stained glass market? Covet another parish's windows? Have no money? Well, now you know what to do.
The best part of it is, that the 'stained glass' can be changed with the feasts! Imagine that...
