This photograph of the interior of St George's Chapel, Windsor shows the great stained glass window in the background with the altar beneath. In the foreground, stalls flank both sides of the nave. The window was commissioned by the Dean and Canons in memory of the Prince Consort, with the lower tier of the stained glass depicting scenes from his life and good works.

The Adoration of the Magi is one of three central scenes featuring Christ, the other two are the Resurrection and Christ seated in glory surrounded by angels and seraphim. The panels to the far left and right depict a selection of prophets, elders and saints. The windows were executed by Clayton & Bell.
