No sign of the Devil in the details of this stained glass window but a couple of mysteries…… There are three sheep but only two wear bells. Christ stands between them but to the left there is a foot that is clearly not his (follow the line of his leg beneath his gown). It is possible that these are allegorical references to the Whyte family with one of the children returning belatedly to the fold though who is standing behind Christ I have no idea. It certainly isn’t the Devil – that’s a foot, not a cloven hoof! The window is in St. Serf’s church, Dunning and was made by Ballantine and Gardiner in Edinburgh. Reputedly these were top of the range glass makers so it must have cost a pretty penny back in 1899!
