Enoch and Abraham, the only clerestory window with stained glass, in the north wall of St Mary's Parish Church, Dundee, with designs by Sir Edward Burne-Jones from 1872, and manufactured by Morris & Co. It was installed in 1893 (Gifford 92), in memory of Provost Lawson of Dundee and his son. According to the church website, it often goes unnoticed, but it is a beautifully set and striking window. Abraham looks on, as Enoch is about to be taken up to heaven (Hebrews 11, 5).
