Beautiful square stained glass panel with I.N.R.I. cruciform motif in a a 2" red oak frame. This panel has a medallion situated in the top center, inside of which, a scroll on a cross with the initials I.N.R.I. is depicted in glass paint against a wine-red background. The initials I.N.R.I. come from the Latin phrase, "Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum", which translates to, "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews". The medallion is surrounded by panes of pale pink, yellow, green, blue, and purple obscure glass inside of an ornate border that runs along the sides and bottom of the panel. The border is decorated with foliage and cruciform motifs in glass paint on uniquely shaped panes of vibrant red, pink, yellow, green, blue, and purple glass. A light coat of glass paint has been applied to the glass in random shapes and configurations to create the illusion of shadows.
This panel is in fair condition. Some panes may be cracked or chipped and the came may be loose in some areas. The exact age and provenance of this piece is unknown. Photos show this piece in it's frame and without it.
