32. St. Peter and Paul Church, East Harling, East window, Virgin in Glory, 1480.
The eye’s journey through the scenes of the window culminates in the brilliant adoration of the Blessed Virgin: the ideal mother.  In essence, the mother always has the last word.  Standing in the center with a gold crown hovering above her halo, Mary exudes a radiance that seeps from her every pore.  The angels surround the mother who is revered in all her glory before her Assumption into Heaven.  Although Anne Harling never had the experience of motherhood, the understanding of the incomparable bond between mother and child is vividly depicted in the scenes of the East Window.  The journey of the Virgin and Christ is an accurate portrayal of the love of a mother and child.
