The St Cuthbert Window

13d St Cuthbert and the otters

This panel is the first of two that show the miracle of St Cuthbert and the otters. It is the only panel in the window that shows St Cuthbert twice. On the left, Cuthbert stands in the sea, his hands raised in prayer. On the right, he is shown seated on the shore, where otters (now displaced) dry his feet. In the upper left, a monk secretly watches Cuthbert.
