Two-light window containing two standing figures of Christ with the symbols of the four evangelists and the Agnus Dei.

technique: stained glass


Church of St David, Llanarth, Ceredigion
south wall of the chancel
previously at: Church of St Gwynlleu, Nantcwnlle, Ceredigion

Removed from Nantcwnlle Church at the time of its closure in around 2005. The standing figure of Christ 'the light of the world' is an example of an image derived from Holman Hunt's famous nineteenth century painting, which was to prove immensely popular with patrons and stained-glass artists. This particular image is somewhat marred by the incongruous crown, which has an unfortunate resemblance to a paper hat taken from a Christmas cracker.
