St. Modan's Church

The right side of the window depicts the ascension into heaven. He is supported by two elderly persons and watched in varying degrees of emotion by three others.

Above his head an angle is trumpeting his arrival while the Commandments and the Word are held by the supporters.

There still is little visible sign of joy or relief. The face of Christ remains as sombre and at repose as in the rest of the scenes.

However there seems to be something haunted and harried in the look of the person carrying the Commandments.

And the keeper of the Work is keeping his head down. Perhaps he is looking at the people below.
