This artistic work of Selam Semrete Selassie meditates the shape and meanings of the 4 letters of the word Timqet ጥምቀት Baptism, through which we can pictographically visualize its traditional iconography.
Tiet ጥ represents the change and fracture determined by the sacrament of rebirth: it is here associated to the suddenly apparition of the Father from heaven.
Miem ም represents the substance coming over the body, that is both the Holy Spirit (Menfes) and the Water (May); here is the dove descending upon the head of Christ.
Qof ቀ represents the hit of that holy substance upon the head of the baptized one, and his unction.
Taw ት is associated with Krstos and the body of the baptized one that receives the sacrament.
