East Window (Scenes from the Life of Christ)
Clayton & Bell
Bangor Cathedral, N. Wales
The "scenes" include the Nativity, the Last Supper, the Crucifixion, and the Ascension, the Crucifixion being central and most prominent (see close-up below). Pearce Ironside-Bax writes, "In the early part of this century, too, the great east window fell into such a state of decay that it had to be renewed. It was a copy of the Perpendicular window which originally existed, and had five lights, ... This was filled with execrable glass, happily removed in the restoration of 1873, when the present glass of pleasing colouring was inserted" (36). [Commentary continues below.]
