photoblog image St Mary's, Beverley

St Mary's, Beverley

 

Detail from one of the Pugin-designed stained glass windows.  I like this one because Mary looks like a real person, rather than some idealisation.

No doubt back in Victorian days this was a real life model Tom
I agree, Tom, and her son bears a a good resemblance. smile (I've just seen that I'm not the only one who's noticed!)
Usually the Virgin is looking at Jesus, but on this occasion looking beyond, as he is. Also no sad expression.
