Passion Typological Window 3: Blacksmiths

Blacksmiths, donors of the window, beat a piece of molten metal with mallets. One of the men holds the metal on an anvil; both are wearing protective aprons. In the background on the right is a furnace, with flames visible. Panel 3 of the Passion Typological Window, c. 1205-15. Chartres Cathedral, France.
