This cartoon was designed in November 1863 for the panel on the extreme left in the stained glass window executed by Morris & Co. on the south side of the nave in Lyndhurst Church, Hampshire. The subject is taken from 'Joshua', X: 6-14. Also in Birmingham's collection are five sheets of studies for figures in this cartoon. Here the figure in the left foreground pushing back the hand of his assailant is a representation of William Morris, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti also appears, helmeted, in the upper left corner. This cartoon also appears in the Morris & Co Windows Book (152a).
