This unfinished reredos is likely to date to the period in which Adshead produced her first mural, The Joys of the Country, Shadwell (1924),
painted in collaboration with her fellow Slade student Rex Whistler. The scenes from the Life of Christ follow a conventional iconography until
the last two panels which include a scene with a missionary reading the scriptures in Africa and figures in contemporary dress apparently
admiring a Neo-Classical building.
