The Soldier's Window, Bellingen

Description

 

This is a stained glass window that measures approximately 1600mm high and 1200mm wide. It is a main feature of the Bellingen Memorial Hall which was established in 1929 by World War I Returned Soldiers, originally as a picture theatre. The Hall now functions as a multi-purpose facility for the Bellingen community. The stained glass window features the image of a soldier which has been intricately hand painted and kiln fired onto the glass. The soldier, dressed in World War I uniform and wearing webbing and pack, is standing in profile holding a Lee Enfield rifle with bayonet fixed. The words 'Bellingen Memorial' are inscribed above and below the soldier.
