I am vicariousy experiencing your enthusiasm for this place, Peter.
....peter:): i am so glad that you have enjoyed this series Ray....petersmile
Oh, yes, Peter: "ΙΧΘΥΣ (ichthys), or also ΙΧΘΥϹ with a lunate sigma, is an acronym/acrostic for "Ἰησοῦς Χριστός, Θεοῦ Υἱός, Σωτήρ" (Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr; contemporary Koine [ie̝ˈsus kʰrisˈtos tʰeˈu (h)yˈjos soˈte̝r]), which translates into English as "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour"."

I grew up as a child knowing this fish symbol was for the followers of Jesus Christ in the early days of Christianity.
....peter:): hi Ginnie... thank you... most of your comments are in hieroglyphics but i was able to make out most of it... the fish and the symbols around it means "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour"...
i was aware that the symbol of the fish the Roman times... lead during new Christians to safe places to meet....petersmile

The ichthys or ichthus (/ˈɪkθəs/), from the Greek ikhthýs AD Koine Greek [ikʰˈtÊ°ys], "fish") is a symbol consisting of two intersecting arcs, the ends of the right side extending beyond the meeting point so as to resemble the profile of a fish. The symbol was adopted by early Christians as a secret symbol. It is now known colloquially as the "sign of the fish" or the "Jesus fish"

I think this is what Ginnie meant.
Wonderful art and a great picture of Penny.
....peter:): i figured out what Ginnie meant Astrid... your explanation is also very good and thank you....petersmile
You see a number of fish symbols on the back of cars here
....peter:): Accordingly to Ginnie and Astrid... the symbol was adopted by early Christians as a secret symbol Bill... it is now known colloquially as the "sign of the fish" or the "Jesus fish"

Ye are a fish or not. Certain churches still use the fish symbol to indicate followers of Christ.
....peter:): it is still the custom today Louis... the symbols in this floor are Greek letters meaning "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour"
