Narcissus

This brilliantly colored window was fabricated by an unknown American studio in the late nineteenth century. The upper half features a trio of yellow narcissus flanked by green foliage; hence the name of the window. In Christian art the narcissus symbolizes the triumph of divine love, sacrifice and eternal life over sin and death. Faceted jewels, molded of glass in a variety of colors, similar to those in the Passion Window, are scattered on the brilliant yellow field and on the blue dedicatory shield.

In memory of Annie M.H, Patrick (1860-1884), wife of William Patrick
Unknown American c. 1887
