Stained glass panel, entitled The Camargue, by Sax R. Shaw

This stained glass panel, entitled 'The Camargue', was made by the Scottish artist Sax R. Shaw in 1983. Sax Shaw was born in Huddersfield on 5th Dec. 1916. He died in Edinburgh on 23rd Sept. 2000)

The leaded glass was painted, etched and ground, and the panel then fitted into a light box. The design is based on a story from the Camargue in France concerning the shipwreck of the Three Marys.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
