Christ issuing his charge to a kneeling Peter, with other apostles in attendance.

technique: stained glass

firm/studio: C.E. Kempe & Co Ltd

Church of St Mary, Llandovery, Carmarthenshire
north wall of the chancel

The church guide pamphlet misidentifies this as a Good Shepherd window. A memorial to Canon William Worthington Poole-Hughes, Warden of Llandovery College and Canon of St David's Cathedral, given by his family.

Note especially the wide-eyed astonishment-fear-awe in the attitude of Peter and the other apostles.
