Five wounds of Christ

Five Wounds of Christ

Angel holding the arma christi, a shield charged with the five wounds.  It is unusual to see this subject in colour, usually it is rendered in yellow stain.  This image from Lawrence Lew’s wonderful photostream, is taken from a panel of fifteenth century glass in Glastonsbury parish church, that was formerly in Glastonbury Abbey in Somerset.   If you enjoyed this image you may enjoy some of the images from Lawrence’s recent churchcrawl in Somerset.
