Description:
AD))): The stained glass pane, depicting a naval scene in a central oval panel, features a man-of-war ship on rough waves. The warship is flying three flags, one all red and two featuring Dutch colors, and has three masts all with rolled-up sails except for the spanker sail. The ship’s stern is adorned with elaborate wood carvings and golden decorations. The hull is equipped with cannons, and a cannon on the stern is mid-firing. Smoke from the ship’s cannons covers the horizon entirely. Behind the ship’s bow, another mast emerges from the cloud of smoke. The central scene is framed by a larger octagonal pane divided into four sections around the oval panel. These are decorated with identical gold acanthus leaves in each quadrant, against a translucent background. (Tomasz Andrzej Grzybowski)
