The impressive bowl was cast in bronze using the lost wax method, which allowed for making spatial handles. The baptismal fonts in this period were mainly carved in stone, which emphasizes the exceptional importance of this project. A relatively simple form - a profiled bowl with handles placed perpendicular to the surface, emphasized with a cross motif and three bumps framed in a teardrop-shaped frame - requiring master skills.
