Happy Whitefriars Wednesday! Here are some fun details from the drawings we’ve been treating. The dragon is a symbol of chaos and evil frequently depicted being slain by an angel or saint. The lion and lamb are common images in Christian iconography that symbolize peace and unity. The wolf and turtle are native to New York and show that the window designer may have incorporated local natural imagery into these windows (installed in a Lake George, NY, church). The two ships symbolize the journey of two local saints, Saints Isaac Jogues and Jean Lalande, made when coming to New York from France in the 17th century. The two castles symbolize protection and safety.
