[Baptismal Certificate]

[Baptismal Certificate]

Date: 1903
Creator: unknown
Description: Certificate from Sigrid Larsen Wind's baptism at Danevang Church written in Danish. There is an illustration at the top of the document of a female angel holding a basin. She is inside a circular motif with a line of bold text going around the top. Additionally, two paper scrolls unroll from leafy branches that decorate the top third of the document. In these scrolls, there are biblical passages from the gospels of John and Mark. Translated from Danish, the passages from John and Mark read: "Unless one is born of water and spirit, he can not be received into God's kingdom" - John 3. 5. "Whosoever believes and is baptized shall be saved, but whoever does not believe shall be damned" - Mark 16. 16. Two more detailed illustrations flank the right and left hand-written parts of the document. The one on the left is of a tall tree in the middle of a deserted, sloping terrain. The image opposite it is of a sailing ship bearing the Danish flag in a large body of water. Four more paragraphs of text are on the bottom flanking an embossed seal.
