Baptism of Christ – Angelico

     Saint John the Baptist, cousin of Jesus, baptizes Christ in the River Jordan, in this image of the fresco by Fra Angelico. The Holy Spirit descends on the Savior in the form of a dove. Two angels witness the Baptism, holding Christ's garments while they kneel on the riverbank. A Dominican friar and a Franciscan sister, wearing halos, also devoutly witness the Baptism.
