Five-light window. Standing figure of Christ in the upper central light, surrounded by five scenes: (left) a man holding a small shining ball, with another holding a box of round objects, probably jewels; (right) a man tends to a man on the ground, his horse behind and passers-by in the background with a town; (below, left to right) two fishermen with their catch and boats behind; a sower at work casting seed and birds; a man greets a younger man, two figures in the background and a stylised house. In the outer lights are abstract designs of birds and lilies (left) and oil lamps (right) above a scene showing a schoolmaster instructing children (below left) and a figure preaching with a crowd and a classical building (below right), probably Paul in Athens.
