Dome Mosaic
Caption
General view of the dome mosaic in the Battistero Neoniano (Orthodox Baptistery), dating from 451-75. Laid out like a great wheel, it centers on Christ's baptism by John the Baptist in the River Jordan. This is surrounded by an inner ring of the Twelve Apostles, labeled with their names, and an outer ring with symbolic scenes of thrones, trees and altars.
