Rose window with central Agnus Dei, by Michael (1801-1867) and Arthur (1826-1873) O'Connor, dating from 1859, at the east end of the north aisle of St Margaret, Bodelwyddan, a Grade II* listed church in Clwyd, N. Wales. The eight figures are those of angels. In each of the four pairs, one bears a crown, the other, with hands clasped in prayer, already wears one. The pairs are divided by foliated motifs. The cross is the main emblem in each of the devices of the inner circle, which are again patterned — eight have white crosses, and after every pair of these is a red one, the top two differing from the lower ones. The whole, brightly coloured with a good deal of deep blue, is very attractive and celebratory. [Click on the image to enlarge it.]
