Jonah Window

Earnley is an incident in the largely characterless sprawl of seaside homes along the Sussex coast. Only it has an old church...

13th century....



And the old church contains a rather lovely modern window (dedicated 1987) which was given in memory of the artist Yvonne Hudson Rusbridge. It shows Jonah in the belly of the great fish accompanied by mer-people blowing horns, while above them the Spirit of God moves upon the face of the waters. .



Here's a close up of one of the mermen



And here's Jonah



The window was made by P Soderberg, using Hudson Rusbridge's own designs.
