Panel 26 - The raven sent forth by Noah feeding on the corpses of the drowned

Description:

At some point the bird has been repaired using suitably coloured stopgap fragments from other windows - a section of microarchitecture (including a cusped quatrefoil) for the lower body, drapery from a man's arm for the upper body and somebody's hair for the raised wings.
