The Story Behind This Icon:

The Holy Apostles Peter and Paul are two of the most important Apostles of Christ, therefore they are pictured together. They also taught together in Rome before their martyrdom. Some say that they were killed on the same day. 

Saint Peter and Paul’s feast days are celebrated June 29, as well as on June 30 with all the other Apostles.


This icon is made of solid, natural limewood (Tilia) that has been prepared by hand using traditional methods and organic materials. The background is comprised of 22 Karat gold leaves that were meticulously applied by hand, piece by piece.

All of our icons are reproduced according to museum print standards and are authentic replicas of Holy Icons from Mount Athos and elsewhere.
