A new stained glass window depicting "Our Lady of Knock" for Our Lady and St. Ninian church, Bannockburn, Scotland.

The crown appeared brilliant, and of a golden brightness, of a deeper hue, than the striking whiteness of the robe she wore; the upper parts of the crown appeared to be a series of sparkles, or glittering crosses.
