Angel Gabriel Rose Window

Frederic and Andre Rault, France

1977 to 1984

The Angel Gabriel is always associated with the announcement of Mary's miraculous pregnancy, known as The Annunciation. This oddly feminine Gabriel carries a stem of Lilies, an ancient symbol of Mary's purity.

The radiating modernist background matches that of the opposite St. Michael window. Andre Rault may have contributed to this window also.
