Narthex

The narthex of a cathedral is the entrance or lobby area, located at the end of the nave, at the far end from the church's main altar. Angels engraved on panes of glass at the entrance to the Cathedral are the work of New Zealand-born artist John Hutton. Hutton used his wife Marigold as the model for the angels.

Similar Hutton windows are a highlight of Coventry Cathedral, England, where they link the new Cathedral with the old one which was bombed during World War II.
