Baptism of Christ — Tissot

This watercolor artwork, by Tissot, shows St. John the Baptist about to baptize his cousin, Jesus Christ, in the Jordan River. The Holy Ghost, in the form of a large white dove, rests on the Savior's left shoulder. Two men hold up white cloths to shield Christ from onlookers. Several men peer at Jesus through tall reeds in the background.
