Two-light window with standing figures. One holds a scroll and quill with a winged ox above, suggesting St Luke, while another dressed in furs holds a wooden cross and stands in water, with a shell motif above.

technique: stained glass

Church of St John the Baptist, Newton, Swansea
north wall of the nave

Although the shell above is often associated with James the Great, the identification of the right-hand figure with John the Baptist is assured given the dedication of the church.
