Illustration—Design for the stained glass for Lledrod Parish Church

We give this week two designs for stained glass by Mr. Silvester Sparrow; one being shown in one of our lithograph plates, and the other in the engraving on this page.

The window shown in the lithograph was designed and made by the artist for the parish church of Lledrod, near Aberystwith, in Wales. The subject is "Christ the Sower—the Angels Reaping"; the whole subject being suggested by the text "He that soweth the good seed is the Son of Man, and the reapers are the angels."

The other illustration is from a coloured cartoon for a stained-glass panel. The idea intended to be expressed in it is that the love of Christ, typified by the flower of Love springing from the sacrificial crown of thorns, draws all Humanity to itself.

Our readers will recognise, we think, both in the designs and in the feeling which it is sought to express in them, something quite distinct from the ordinary commonplaces of stained-glass windows.
