Panel 04 - Unidentified fragmentary panel
Description:
A curious panel which appears to depict a hooded man carrying his head in his hands. It is far from clear however whether this is a misplaced panel depicting a cephalophore saint (there is no halo however) or simply an error by restorers. The two figures are located within an arcaded space covered by a green tiled roof, above which appears the blessing hand of God. On balance I suspect this panel may be an interloper from some other window, though it would seem to be by the same workshop.
