One of these European-looking Semitic kings...
Tom Wilson: There's a lot of 'em about, Larry smile

That has to be Jack, Tom...the grown up kid who stole the giant's golden harp!
Tom Wilson: Now there's a thought!
That's such a beautiful stained glass!!
Tom Wilson: Very fine - interesting what a 17th century sheriff could pay for!
He could well be Tom! Great capture.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.

Yes, King David in all his glory! But he was also a bad man!
Tom Wilson: We're all good and bad in various mixtures, Philine - if we were perfect we'd be angels smile

He looks a bit bleary, Tom
Tom Wilson: Probably fresh from a bit of carousing smile

Poor old king, now his missus has run off with the captain of the guard all he can do nowadays is play his harp & look wistful..
Tom Wilson: It's a hard life!
Makes you wonder who he was looking at this time, Tom! (Sorry, that was in reference to Philine's comment.)
Tom Wilson: Perhaps the harp was irresistible to ladies of the time, Ginnnie smile
It's a very good likeness Tom.
Tom Wilson: You reckon? Larry doesn't seem to think so!
Two lots of stained glass today, this is another delightful work of art, I thought these top guys had people to entertain them did he fall on hard times.
Tom Wilson: Well, Henry VIII is said to have composed Greensleeves, and even Prince Charles plays the cello, so perhaps musicality is found in royalty smile

In his earlier days he played the harp to sooth Saul's soul. It could be him, although the cloak seems modern.
Tom Wilson: Perhaps this is what the image recalls, Louis.
Very well captured the bright colors
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Chantal.
He looks good and has music to go with it.
Tom Wilson: A strapping fellow!
Or Old King Cole?
Tom Wilson: Probably not, Bill smile
