ステンドグラス「杜の讃歌」
Vivid hues carry a European theme
Instantly recognizable as the symbol of Sendai Station, the stained glass at the station entrance was installed in 1978, just before the Shinkansen bullet train was lunched.Inspired by the desire to see Tohoku prosper, this artwork is the creation of painter, Zenjiro Chikaoka, who studied in Europe. With the motifs of Tanabata Festival's livery, Lord Masamune Date (the 17th century) riding high in the saddle, and Matsushima Islands and Godaido Temple which are the representative landscape of Miyagi Prefecture, the rich colors attracts all the focus to the artwork.
