Two-light window. Christ stands in the right-hand light, opposite two disciples, with two further disciples kneeling below.

size: 42 cm (width of each light)
firm/studio: Celtic Studios
designer: Howard Martin

Church of St Margaret, Crynant, Neath Port Talbot
north wall of the nave

Signed with Celtic Studios' cross.

Given in memory of Arthur James and Margaret Hughes by their daughter Stella.


Could the scene depict James and John (beardless) kneeling, in the argument concerning who would sit at his right hand? Maurice Broady interprets the scene as Christ teaching his disciples to pray.
