in the cloisters of Gloucester Cathedral by Hardman from Birmingham, 1898, are a triptych. "Hardman & Co., otherwise John Hardman Trading Co., Ltd., founded 1838, began manufacturing stained glass in 1844 and became one of the world's leading manufacturers of stained glass and ecclesiastical fittings."
Last Saturday I posted the left window. On the second window Jesus is just rescueing a lamb from a branch. The third window could remind of the appearance of the angels to the shepherds in Bethlehem.
I read also the following information about Gloucester Cathedral: "In 1284, John de Gamages became abbot at Gloucester and through his farming knowledge increased the stocks of sheep owned by the abbey and returned a profit." Maybe, this could explain that we can see some sheep depicted in this cathedral. In general, the sheep are a popular subject in religious art.
