Church of St Mary, Bangor, Gwynedd
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The relatively humble dress of the three visiting figures suggests that they are shepherds, although the staffs that they hold are not shepherd's crooks and no sheep are present. However, there is no evidence (gifts, royal dress or camels in the background) to suggest that these are in fact the Magi.
