A lunette-shaped panel composed of red, blue, white, brownish purple and yellowish brown stained glass joined together by lead cames depicting a seraph. Four leafy fronds, taken from another medieval window, have been inserted here between the seraph's head and shoulders.

A half-length figure of a seraph, the highest of all the orders of angels, appears with arms outstretched in the center of this stained glass panel, which formed the upper half of a medallion from the enormous west rose window of Reims Cathedral. A vivid blue halo encircles the seraph's head, and two of his wings open behind his arms while another pair are folded over his chest. Originally installed high above the cathedral floor, this seraph along with twenty-three other angels glorified the heavenly assumption of the Virgin Mary depicted in the center of the rose window.
