  • Inspired by the spiritual practice of Baptism in the Christian church.

Baptism is considered a symbolic representation of spiritual cleansing. It is a public declaration of one's faith in Jesus Christ and a commitment to following his teachings. It is also seen as a symbolic act of one's old self dying and being reborn or resurrected into a new life in Christ.

The water used in baptism is symbolic of the Holy Spirit and the cleansing power of God's grace. The act of immersion in water represents a complete surrender to God and a willingness to be washed clean of one's past sins and mistakes.

Baptism in a church through immersion in water represents a powerful spiritual symbol of rebirth and cleansing and a channel through which God's grace is transmitted to believers.

This work of art by Edwin Lester depicts an African American woman who has decided to make a change in her life and start living a life based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. She emerges from the water reborn and renewed.
