One of the other great features of the Federation Windows are the Australian themed native birds depicted in the panels above the main windows.
In the area of Government House, which houses the main stairwell, above the landing is depicted another fine example of stained glass commissioned by governor Sir Eric and Lady Neal in 2001 to mark the centenary of Federation.
These windows were made by local SA glass artist Ms Jan Aspinall. The more traditional stained glass has been abandoned with representations of images relating to the South Australian countryside, culture and economy.
The Arts are depicted in images of the Festival Centre, musical notes as well as a Hans Heysen painting of sheep grazing.
A map of metropolitan Adelaide is also on view along with a scene of Glenelg and a map of the Barossa Valley. Key industries are represented including agriculture, mining, aquaculture, viticulture and wine.
In the left lower corner of these windows, an Aboriginal Elder is depicted exchanging desert sand with a white person to symbolise changes reflected in Aboriginal land rights legislation. There are also memorials relating to both the Boer War and the two World Wars, with the vertical posts showing an intertwining of eucalyptus leaves with exotic foliage, including grapevines and an Adelaide rose.
Magnificent examples of stained glass within our Vice Regal residence.
