Christ the King Church
Fort Smith, Arkansas
This emphasis of this simple font is the bowl which contains the water of baptism. The pedestal's design is identical to that of the tabernacle, thus drawing a visual connection between Baptism and Eucharist. The font bowl is by Ft. Smith artist Peter Lippincott. It features hand-embossed fish which encircle the bowl, a reminder of Christ and primitive Christian iconography.
