Mosaic symbolizing the well known miracle of Jesus:
” And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place,
and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the village,
and buy themselves victuals. But jesus said unto them, They need not depart;
give ye them to eat. And they said unto him, we have but five loaves, and two fishes.
He said, bring them hither to me. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass,
and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven,
he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve
baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children” (Matthew 14th 15-21)
