The windows of Bethlehem, Pemberville

The windows, from the Flanagan Art Glass Co. of Chicago in 1909, are true works of art. The painting is wonderful, and the details are incredible.

"I have come to bring you good tidings ..."
"He is not here ... He is risen!"
Jerusalem can be seen in the background.
Mary Magdalene's hair - every brush stroke is perfect!
Look at the expressions on the faces of Mother Mary and St. John ...
"Let the children come to me ..."
Noah's ark ...
"Mary has chosen the better part ..."
The prodigal ...
The sower and the grain; a tribute to the farmers of this rural town.
Such fine little details can be found in these windows!
