Symbol Crashes

Some believe this window was designed by Mrs. Winchester. It depicts a spider's web with thirteen droplets of water.
There are many instances of spider webs and the number thirteen in the mansion, but the significance of this is uncertain.
Spider web windows such as these are common in Victorian houses, but did they have a special meaning for Mrs. Winchester.

Spider webs are used to visually warn birds away from windows, birds naturally wont fly into webs. In Victorian times a bird crashing into the window was a very bad omen of an upcoming death.
