Photographer's Note

The episcopical basilica in the ancient city of Stobi has a big four leaf shaped baptismal room next to it. It was built in the 4th century and is decorated with beautiful floor mosaics, presenting peacocks and deers drinking water from fountains. The water and the fountains represent Christ and his teaching, the deers represent the suffering soul of the Christian and the peacocks represent eternal life. In the center of the room there is a baptismal pool decorated with white and black marbles, over which a dome used to stand.
