Set into a 13th century window, in the south ambulatory of Chartres Cathedral, this image of the Virgin and Child, dated to around 1150, is made up of four panels. The blue halo and clothing of the Virgin Mary are set against a red background. The surrounding panels are 13th century with six panels at the bottom of the window showing scenes from the Marriage feast at Cana, and the bottom three panels depict the three temptations of Christ.
