The lost hand in this panel reflects the removal of the panels from their original clerestory location and relocation into the late 14th century West Window and the Great South Window. The move resulted in the order of the ancestors being confused, fathers and sons split up and the detailed ornamental borders being removed and hands and feet amputated in order to fit the new surround.
The panels were painted by different artists, their names lost but thought to be French. Some panels are distinctive in their style; Enoch, Methuselah, Adam, Lamech and Noah are thought to be painted by the 'Methuselah Master' who had a sculptural, animated style with a naturalistic feel.
