Description of Musician King

The Musician King

During the Gothic Era,  light acquired a new symbolism: it represented the idea of Perfection and Beauty. This divine connotation, pure and immaterial as the light itself, tried to elevate  believers to the celestial omnipresence. As a consequence, God filled all the sacred space of the cathedral by the light coming  through the stained-glass windows, which had at the same time, the role of creating “invisible walls” in the church, and being the holder of the iconography.

In the northern rose window of León cathedral in Spain, a reigning Christ appears in the middle, and expands his power reaching outwards. This way, all the kings celebrate his kingdom with music by playing musical instruments to commemorate the King of Kings.
