The description is written by the researcher Alec Mishory. 

Jeremiah's prophesies abound in objects and animals as metaphors. They enable artists to depict concise images of single objects in conveying moral and social messages. In a stained glass window dedicated to prophet Jeremiah, the artist includes a depiction of a seething pot, which stands for the evil brought by God upon the People of Israel: "And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north. (Jeremiah 1, 13). Clay in the hands of a potter, who shapes it on a wheel serves in conveying the way God treats the Israelites: "O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel" (Jeremiah, 18, 6). A grapevine stands for "O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for thee with the weeping of Jazer: thy plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer: the spoiler is fallen upon thy summer fruits and upon thy vintage" (Jeremiah, 48, 32-33).
