A double panel.
The window represents the bringing of the infant Jesus by his parents to the Temple in Jerusalem to be consecrated to God, in keeping with Jewish law and custom. The rite required the offering of a pair of turtle-doves. Joseph stands twirling his moustache and holding in his right hand a small wicker cage containing the doves. Mary kneels in profile, hands crossed over her breast. Simeon holds the child Jesus on his right arm and intones his great prayer: “Lord, dismiss now Thy servant in peace, for mine eyes have seen Thy salvation which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people, a light to lighten the Gentiles and the glory of Thy people Israel”.
The figures are surmounted by stone canopies with scrolls showing the opening line of Simeon’s prayer: “Seigneur, tu laisses aller ton serviteur maintenant en paix, car mes yeux ont vu ton salut”. Above, a small cruciform window shows the bust of an angel carrying an open book inscribed: “La Parole de Dieu”.
