(left) The Prophet Samuel, as a boy, is shown answering the call of God. He is wearing the silver garment that his mother, Hannah, is said to have made for him. Befitting a king, the garment is tied with a golden girdle and the hem of the skirt is woven with jewels and bound with gold.

(right) The stern-faced Apostle Philip is shown carrying a crossed-staff. In this depiction the artist shows three kinds of grass. It has no particular symbolism, but was merely a way in which the artists thought of decorating in the old European cathedrals.



The symbols, from left to right, are The Holy Bible, The Chalice, and the Winged Torch.
