Two-light window. Christ is seated in the left-hand light with a child, and opposite are a woman, her children and a disciple.


firm/studio: Mayer & Co.

Church of St David, Bangor, Gwynedd
south wall of the nave (window number: sX)


The large space between the two lights is unfortunate, as the stock design is intended as a fairly intimate scene. However, as in the case of other windows in the church with a single scene spread over two or three lights, the fenestration places a yawning chasm between the figures.
