Bay 111b - The Story of Joseph (1st Window)

Return to the Le Mans index page

Panel 11 - Joseph in bed, dreaming about the bowing sheaves (as seen in panel 13)

Very poor condition with several repairs but appears to show Joseph awaking from his dreams. The shape of his right leg, stepping out of bed, is still visible in the leading, though it has been filled with blue glass. His right hand has been repaired with a fragment of early 14th century glass decorated with silver-stain.

The glass used for Joseph's face is heavily corroded and looks opaque in normal conditions. Overexposing by several stops and tweaking the levels in Photoshop (to show just the paint surface) reveals a bearded, full-frontal face as seen below. Since Joseph is shown smooth-chinned in all the other panels, this is clearly a later repair.
