Panel 02 - Signature panel (wine growers)
Description:
To the left are four labourers wielding distinctive beak-shaped hoes. To the right, separated from them by a sinuous and gnarled grape vine, is a hooded figure who reaches out to the vine with his right hand and in his left holds a pruning knife - note the curved blade with a subsidiary chopping blade on the back. Identical implements can be seen more clearly here, in the St Julian window at Le Mans.
