Christ and the Virgin Mary with St Theodore and St David

1955 (central lights)

Four-light window with standing figures. Angels hold the dedication in the lower central lights and beneath Theodore is a depiction of the church, while beneath David is a local scene with a mine. Symbols above of the Agnus Dei, dove of the Holy Spirit and the pelican in her piety.

firm/studio: Celtic Studios

Church of St Theodore, Ynysddu, Caerphilly
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The central lights and upper tracery lights were made by Celtic Studios in 1955, and the outer lights were added later, with separate dedications, probably in the 1970s or 80s.

The image of Theodore of Tarsus was based on a statuette in the church that was given by a former parishioner (Information kindly provided by Marian Dew).
