Here, Jesus is pictured as “Christ Pantocrator,” meaning “Lord of the Universe.” I love how little rows of white tiles give him crows’ feet and frown lines above his unibrow. Above his left shoulder is an image of the first miracle he performed — jugs of water being turned into wine at the wedding of Cana. Over his left shoulder, he multiplies the five loaves of bread and two fishes to feed the 5,000.
