The Adoration of the Magi window from 1846 belongs to the Bavarian Window Cycle, which illustrates the history of salvation from west to east.
The central scene combines the birth of Christ with the Adoration of the Magi. The upper scene depicts the Annunciation to the Virgin. Below, the Old Testament prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel are shown as foretellers of the coming of Christ. The window was made in 1846 by the Royal Glass Painting Manufactory in Munich at the behest of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, who then donated it to the cathedral. His coat of arms and an inscription describing the gift appear in the framing architecture of the central scene.
The paint layers of some of the pieces of glass appear to have been incorrectly fired, as they are matte and porous. For this reason, some of these pieces were covered with BS 31 on the internal side.
The application with BS 31 was also used on the exterior to cover cracks and retouches.
Panel 4d was chosen for the Constglass Project.
