"I am the True Vine."

"I am the True Vine" Stained glass by Beverley Shore Bennett in the windows of the ambulatory, St Paul's Cathedral, Wellington, NZ.

These windows are based around the "I am" statements of Jesus - the Bread, the Way, the Vine, the Life, the Resurrection, the Lamb of God. The windows contain many symbols, which elaborate on these themes, for example the life cycle of the monarch butterfly, as seen in the Resurrection window.
