Two-light window. An angel holds a banner over the figures: 'I am the Resurrection'.

technique: stained glass

firm/studio: A. L. Moore & Son

Church of St David, Carreg-wen, Pembrokeshire
south wall of the chancel


Standing figure of Mary, holding her emblem the lily, indicates with her left hand the standing figure of the (?) resurrected Jesus. Is this window a reference to the ancient belief (not recorded in the gospels) that Jesus' first Risen appearance was to His mother?
