Passengers using the new Walbrook entrance to Bank Station in London will see 24 glowing glass panels etched with scenes from the Roman past. These are an amazing legacy from the discovery of the Temple of Mithras on this site in 1954.
The uniform backlighting of the now beautifully clean panels means that the figures are more visible and a great reference to the history of the discovery of the temple of Mithras. The panels have long been recognised as a significant art work in the City of London.
Studio ND have been working with Tfl to recreate the timeless illustrations on the panels for passengers to soak up the history of the Roman past as well as John Hutton who was renowned in his field of glass engraving.
