St Dyfnog Window
Inside St. Dyfnog's Church Llanrhaeadr, North Wales, UK.The north chamber retains the famous Tree of Jesse window, called the finest Glass window in all Wales, exceeded by few in England. It depicts the descent of Christ from Jesse (father of King David) who lies asleep in a walled garden at its base. From him springs a many branched family tree inhabited by Christs kingly ancestors, with King David holding his harp in the central position. The figures resemble court playing cards, which took their present form at about the time the window was made in 1533, the date inscribed in Latin in the bottom right corner. Near the top, in pride of place, stand the Virgin and Christ-child in a blaze of sun rays.
