1928

Three-light window.


firm/studio: Powell & Sons (Whitefriars) Ltd
designer: J. Hodges

Church of St James the Great, Walwyn's Castle, Pembrokeshire
east wall of the chancel

Text: 'Glory to God in the highest. Arise shine for thy light has come'.

Dedication: 'To the Glory of God and in memory of James Bowlas Summers and Emma Mary Anne Summers of Rosemoor of this parish AD 1928'.


An attractive composition. Note the star in the apex of the window. The lantern held by the elderly shepherd (left) is in the style popularized by Holman Hunt in his 'Light of the World'. The kneeling magus (right) has the pose and features common in fifteenth-sixteenth century 'donor' portraits in windows and manuscripts - a conscious piece of medievalism.
