Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, Full Body - Hand Painted Icon

[Model: HND_st-11328]

Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul.


The Holy Apostles Peter and Paul were chosen by Jesus Christ to become Apostles and to teach the Gospel to the Jews as well as to the nations.

Apostle Peter was originally from Bethsaida in Galilee and was a fisherman by profession. Near the lake of Gennesaret where he and his brother Andreas were fishing, they met Jesus Christ whom they followed faithfully.

Apostle Paul was born a pagan in Tarsus, Cilicia, but on a trip to Damascus he met Jesus Christ through a miracle and thus embraced Christianity.

The two are the leading Apostles of our Church who preached the Truth and the Word of God during their tours. They breathed their last in martyrdom in Rome.


Apolytikion

First in prominence among the Apostles, and teachers to the Universe, intercede to the Master of all for peace in the world and for our souls great mercy.

Kontakion

O Lord, receive unto the enjoyment of Your good things and Your rest, the steadfast preachers of Godly words, the pinnacle of Your Disciples. Receive their pain and death above every sacrifice, for You alone know the hearts of men.


Hand-Painted Icons occupy a valuable place in ecclesiastical art because, beyond their obvious artistic value, a hand-painted icon unites man with the holiness of the depicted person.


For the Hand-Painted Icon of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, our experienced painters use traditional techniques and high-quality materials that offer excellent depiction and durability over time.


All our Hand-Painted Icons are painted with egg tempera, while you can choose the size of the icon, the decoration of the background, the language of the inscriptions as well as the type of wood you wish to use.


Note: The final Icon may slightly differ from the catalog photo.
