Aaron, one of the twelve Old Testament figures in the outer circle of the west window in St John the Baptist, Holland Road, Kensington. Percy Bacon Brothers, 1910. With his mitre and elaborate breastplate, Aaron's attire closely follows the description given in Exodus 28, and he carries the flowering rod that marks him out as chosen for the priesthood, together with an unfurled scroll, suggestive of his prophetic as well priestly role.

Whole window.
