Victory over Death

Tiffany Glass Company

The next window depicts Martha, Mary, and Jesus at the tomb of Lazarus. Above them are angels heralding victory over death and a flock of doves in flight, symbolizing departed souls seeking God. The window was designed by Frederick Wilson, the leading designer (after Tiffany himself) at the Tiffany Glass Company.

Note that in the American-manufactured windows in this church, the faces and portraits are painted in oils onto the transparent glass. The English-manufactured windows in this church use an entirely different technique, where all aspects of the illustration are etched directly onto the colored glass and stained prior to assembly. The painted portraits have weathered over time, and are now protected from weather elements with a outer layer of plexiglass.
