Single-light window. A dove amid rays of light hovers in the clouds over waters below, with light shining down from above. The surrounding glass includes a repeated pattern of crowns with stars.

technique: stained glass
size: 35 cm (width)

Church of St Catwg, Llangattock, Powys
south wall of the nave (baptistry)

Although dated 1887, the design and execution is reminiscent of glass painting from the earlier part of the century.

The dove hovering over the waters is suggestive of the Holy Spirit over the waters of baptism, and perhaps also of the wind or spirit of God over the waters in Genesis 1:2. The light above represents the light of God the Father.
