"Jesus also was baptised"

Goddard & Gibbs


St. Martin's Church, West Acton

This, next to the northernmost of the west lancet windows, shows Jesus being baptised by St John the Baptist, with the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove overhead. The pastel colours of the background and frame are particularly beautiful, producing an iridescent effect.
