Agriculture and History

Cakebread and Robey, London


Manitoba's agriculture is perhaps given a Biblical context here. In the first panel a Sower casts his seed; in the second, two moonlit Angels harvest the wheat.

Christ tells the Parable of the Lost Sheep in the third panel, and appears in his familiar guise as The Good Shepherd in the last panel.

The upper border panels contain crests of ten Canadian Anglican Dioceses. In the lower border a portrait of Archbishop Machray appears beside his Diocesan Crest.
