This baptismal font is no longer used, as it is no longer watertight. In spite of this, it has been preserved, as well as the mural which covers all of the walls (and ceiling!) of the room. It undoubtedly provided a beautiful environment for this sacred ordinance, and is almost reminiscent of the environment provided in temples.
Max Weaver did not do the original painting, but he continued to preserve and retouch the painting through the years, as recently as 2012. He passed away about a year ago.
This room is absolutely stunning, even if it is small and no longer used for the purpose of baptisms.
