Sower on Stony Ground

Medieval stained glass depicting the first scene of the Parable of the Sower, in which seeds scattered on stony ground are eaten by birds (Mt 13:3-5; Mk 4:3-5). Right panel in the fifth register of the Second Typological Window (n. XV, 19) in the north choir aisle, dated to about 1180. This was originally part of the Sixth Typological Window, which centered on the theme of seeds and the bread of the Eucharist.
