Baptismal fonts are freestanding water basins that are designed to hold a portion of baptismal water for use during a baptism ceremony. While the first baptism took place in a river, today's baptisms are typically performed indoors. The baptismal font is a stand-in for a larger body of water like a lake or a river. They range in size from smaller movable fonts to much larger permanent fixtures. Smaller fonts are used for ceremonies where water is poured over the head of the person being baptized while immersion ceremonies require much larger fonts that can holder a greater volume of water.
