Baptismal Font Paintings

Although it is hard to fully appreciate here, these paintings are huge...127 inches (10 ft 7 inches) by 144 inches (12 feet).  There is one painting on each side of the baptismal font. 

OLD TESTAMENT:  The first shows God the Father and the Holy Spirit in the center surrounded with symbols presaging baptism from the Old Testament:  Noah and the Ark, The Parting of the Red Sea, The Rescue of Moses from the River Nile and Striking Water from a Stone.

NEW TESTAMENT:  The crucified Christ is at the center of this image surrounded by New Testament symbols of baptism: The Woman at the Well, The Raising of Lazarus, The Baptism of the Eunuch, and Restoring Sight to the Blind man.
