Another visit to Delft

We took another trip to Delft to shop for a little more delftware and....
spend some time in the city square and its environs.
We wanted to see inside the Nieuwe Kerk...

...where the Dutch royalty is buried (see previous posting on Delft).

Case noticed this stained glass window entitled "The Raising of Jairus's Daughter". It is an abstract piece amongst the more classical works in the remaining windows, but you might be able to make out Christ's hand above the girl's face. (It helped us to have the diagrams in the guide book. Now our reaction is appreciation and enjoyment instead of just, "???")
