Subject/Title of Window: Jesus and Craftsmen
Brief Description of Subject: In the chapel of St. Dunstan (10th C. Archbishop of Canterbury and patron saint of goldsmith/artists and craftsmen), craftsmen from the Bible and craftsmen who actually worked on Christ Church Cranbrook are honored. This reflects the great influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement (William Morris) on the church. For this window, the central figure of Christ holding three nails and the hammer of his crucifixion is not identified by name. The others are as follows: at the left, St. Joseph, the carpenter (with saw); St. Crispin, shoe maker; at the right, Noah the shipwright; and Tubal Cain, metal worker. Below the figure of Jesus is a portrait of King David, the psalmist, with his harp.
Type of Glass and Technique: Antique or Cathedral Glass, Lead Came
