The three-light Immaculate Conception window has thirteen tracery lights: eight tiny blue lights and five quatrefoils containing angel’s heads with ruby or green wings on a blue background. The left light contains three angels in profile on a dark blue and lilac background.
The top panel of the second light depicts an angel in robes of ruby and burgundy with spectacular wings of blue and green. The main panels depict Mary in blue and turquoise robes and cloak. Mary is portrayed floating on a cloud with six angels. The musician wears spectacular robes of gold, brown and purple. He plucks a wooden lute and mischievously smiles at the viewer. The third light depicts three angels in profile on a dark blue and lilac background.
