The exhibition brings together the recently conserved large round panel of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary with the angel panels that once surrounded it in the west rose window of 1863 in the Church of the Assumption in Rhyl, North Wales. Both the church and the stained glass windows were designed by John Hungerford Pollen, and the glass was made by Powells.
