Disciples, Saints, and Martyrs —  mosaic panels in Keble College Chapel designed by William Butterfield. St. Peter with the keys and church appears at left, Mary Magdalene is second from the right, and the young man at right with a cup holding a snake would be John or Benedict. At the edge of the photograph we can see part of the sculptural framing of the mosaic depicting God the father as alpha and omega. Note the carved angel playing a violin.
