InDesign: clipping path to be a frame for a raster image

I have an illustrator outline (cathedral window shape with bezier curves, very simple)
and a separate normal image (hi res, raster).
I'm layout out this "cropped" picture in an InDesign page.

I want to use the illustrator path as a clipping path so that only the part of the photo shows that is inside the path.
I tried Object>Clipping path, but that is trying to reconstruct (re-discover) the bezier path and introduces wiggles at "corners" (intersections of the curve and straight line).
I just want ID to use the path as-is as a boundary for what shows from the image.

How can i marry the two in InDesign?

thanks

Drag the path from illustrator into indesign (or use copy - paste if that's difficult -- I use a two-monitor setup, so it's easy for me)(1).
Now it should be converted to an unnasigned frame.  Place the image into indesign as usual (but click inside the new frame you just created).

(1) If you drag or copy the path from illustrator 10, first go to Preferences - files and clipboard and check AICB (no transparency) and Preserve Paths.
