By Averil Staunton

This panel represents Christ's ascension into heaven.  He is clad in various shades of red, rose and magenta tinted robes with golden sleeves and trim.  As He hovers above his disciples, one can see the wounds in His hands and feet.

The predella: shows the Blessing of Little Children by Jesus who stands at centre holding an infant. In all, there are thirteen children with three other adults, some holding infants.
