In this close-up view, the intricate details of the Christian artistic mosaic inside the Bekalta Baptismal Font from the Byzantine Era in the 6th century are revealed. The font, discovered in El Gaalla between Bekalta and Teboulba in Tunisia, showcases a remarkable display of religious symbolism. The focus of the image is on the central cross within the mosaic. The cross serves as a prominent feature, representing the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the foundation of Christian faith. From the center of the cross, the Greek letters alpha and omega hang, symbolizing the beginning and the end, signifying the eternal nature of God. The mosaic surrounding the font incorporates textual elements, which are intricately integrated into the pavement. The text may consist of biblical verses, prayers, or religious inscriptions, serving as a sacred backdrop for the baptismal font.Image ID#: 12773 / Category: Religion, Arts / Price: 499$
