Saint Mary's Church, Waterloo Park

MotherAndChild

The second window, in loving memory of Mary Edwards, died in 1923, also depicts a very peaceful scene. One's attention is drawn to Eli's open hands welcoming a child that makes us think of a very young Jesus, but it's Samuel the prophet. The colours and attention to detail of the robes are extraordinary, and so is the background, depicting the traditional gothic canopies we are so used to, even though this is a post-Victorian window.
