Stained Glass in Wales | Gwydr Lliw yng Nghymru

St Michael and St Deiniol

about 1897

Two-light window with standing figures.

Church of St Deiniol, Llanddaniel Fab, Anglesey
north wall of the nave

The winged figure of Michael, standing over the dragon, is easily identifiable, however the figure on the right is less certain. Standing with a harp, and with the initial D above, the figure may represent the Old Testament David. However, the figure is not crowned, but has a halo and holds his hand in blessing. The figure may perhaps be the patron of the church, Deiniol Fab, or his better-known father, Deiniol.
