The Wenhaston Doom: Virgin and John the Baptist

Both the Blessed Virgin Mary and John the Baptist kneel at the top right of the Doom, attended by a crescent moon and a scroll.
The rainbow upon which the Divine Judge sits appears again by the Virgin's knees, linking these two parts of the painting. The wooden Rood cross would have been between the two but only the bare wood outline is evident.
