The last window on the North side shows 'The expulsion from Paradise' and bears the promise made immediately after the Fall "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed." Our Lady and her child are shown at the top of the window: Mary as the woman of the Book of the Apocalypse clothed with the sun, standing on the moon and with a crown of twelve stars. She is crushing the head of the serpent (Satan) which is the only way to kill a snake. They are thus the fulfilment of the first promise of salvation.
