Description

Peter, also known as Simon, was one of the 12 apostles. He became the leader of the apostles, after Jesus' ascension. He was originally from Bethsaida on the northern shore of the sea of Galilee. Peter was married. He was a fisherman with his brother Andrew. His home was in Capernaum. When Jesus called him to be an apostle, he was given the added name Cephas (Aramaic: "stone," Greek: "Petros," which in English is rendered as Peter).
Peter was one of the three main apostles, along with James and John, who were chosen by Jesus to be present during certain important moments of His ministry.
When Jesus asked him "Who do you say I am?" Peter made that famous statement, "You are the Christ (Messiah) the Son of the Living God."
Under the power of the Holy Spirit, Peter healed the sick and raised the dead. He made a trip to Antioch (Galatians 2:1), and possibly Corinth (1 Corinthians 1:12). It is believed that Peter later traveled to Rome, and was martyred there by crucifixion in 64 AD. He is said to have requested that he be crucified upside down, because he said he wasn't worthy of dying in the same way as Jesus.
The Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul is on 29 June.

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE:
I made this piece on a wood panel with tempera paint over a stucco canvas.The halo of St Peter is made with gold leaf. The surface of the icon is varnished with couple of layers to assure a long lasting image and to make it easy and safe to clean it from dust. The back and the sides of the icon are stained with darker tone semi transparent varnish for a nice finish. There is a hole on the back of the icon for easy hanging on a wall.

The icon measurements are: 12" long (30cm), 6" wide(15,5cm), and about an inch deep. (2cm)

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you want to commission a specific icon that you don't see in my shop.
