(left) John the Baptist is portrayed as a desert character. At his feet is a tipped water vessel depicting the barren dryness of the desert.

(right) Apostle Simon the Zealot, shown as a very old man, is resting on a saw. In art, Simon has the identifying attribute of a saw because he was put to death by a saw.



The symbols, from left to right, feature The Anchor, The Sheaf of Wheat, and The Lily. The Anchor, the symbol of Hope College, is featured in several of the Chapel’s windows.
