I am the vine; you are the branch

I discovered this window when doing an estimate for repair of windows at St Columbkille's Church in Rutherglen, Glasgow. I do not yet know the maker.

It is supported inside the main window which is 8 metres tall. This internal positioning has kept it from the damage that all the external windows on this side have received from pellet guns.

The image is supported mid-way up the whole window.

The title "I am the vine; you are the branches" is wound round the figure. I have added two photos which are not accurately cropped but still give a good idea of the quality of the work.

Perhaps I will be able to learn more as I work in the Church.
