Individual Panels of the Polyptych


The polyptych has eleven panels.  This page has one photograph of each panel to help you identify which is where and what it looks like.

The diagram (right) shows where each panel is located.

We have numbered the panels starting from the left side and working across, including both front and back of each door panel.

When the door panels are closed (to show the outside), you are seeing panels 1, 4, 8 and 11 on the diagram - all of which contain genealogical information about the St. John family.

These outside panels contain coats of arms and have been more intensely photographed - you can view them either as individual crests or see an entire row at a time (one row equals one generation) using the links in the Polyptych Menu above, or below the appropriate photograph.  We hope to return another time to photograph the inside panels in the same way.

When the door panels are open to show the inside, you are seeing panels 2, 5, 6, 7 and 10, three of which have portraits of the St. Johns and two are more genealogical.  Panel 6 is double the width of the others.  The two 'hidden' panels, 3 and 9, can only be seen when some panels are open and some closed and they also show the St. John family tree.

There are four doors that swivel - they are all painted on both sides.

Below is one photograph of each panel - click on the link below it to see more photographs of that panel.
