The Three Maries at the Tomb, and the Resurrection of Christ, St Andrew's church, East Heslerton, N. Yorkshire. The church, designed by G. E. Street, was built in 1873-77, and the stained glass throughout is by Clayton and Bell. The closer view of the Resurrection shows one of the soldiers set to guard the tomb is still sound asleep, but the other has awoken, and is looking dazed. — Rita Wood and Jacqueline Banerjee
