Tracery. At the left and right are IHC monograms, with the Agnus Dei and Dove in between.

Left-hand light. Christ stilling the waves. This is probably an allusion to circumstances of the dedicatee’s death, at sea in a yachting accident.

Right-hand light. The Resurrection. Christ rises from the tomb, and below Him are the frightened Roman soldiers who were guarding the it.
