about 1910

Three-light window with standing figures. Family heraldry in the upper tracery lights. Cynog holds a martyr's palm and a cross, and has a Celtic tonsure. His famous torc is also depicted and his cloak is fastened by a penannular brooch. Brychan also wears a cloak fastened by a penannular brooch, and a sword; he is crowned, holding a sceptre and a cross. Alud holds a sword and a stone is shown by her feet. A landscape of hills is shown in the background behind the figures, which is suggestive of the Brecon Beacons.
