1890

Five-light window. Christ is depicted as a boy, standing in the central light and adored by the Magi, shepherds, Mary and attendant angels.


firm/studio: W. F. Dixon

Church of St Mary, Aberavon, Port Talbot, Neath Port Talbot
east wall of the chancel

Given, with the reredos and pulpit, by Mrs Llewelyn of Baglan Hall.

The depiction of the adoration of the shepherds and Magi is nearly always depicted in the context of the Nativity in Bethlehem, making this scene most unusual.
