The East Window of St Andrew's, Weaverthorpe, Yorkshire, by Clayton and Bell (see listing text), possibly designed by George Edmund Street. This three-light window, on the theme of the "Adoration of the Lamb," was probably installed during Street's restoration of the old Norman church in 1870-72. The panel on the right shows the great amount of detail in the robes of the richly dressed kings, who hold out their glistening crowns in token of the yielding of all earthly power. Above them are musician angels giving praise.

Closer view of the central part, with its symbolic assertion of the presence of God, and the whole Christian promise: the Lamb of God on the Ark of the Covenant, resting on the suggestion of a rainbow. Above are angels holding scrolls: "Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus."
