An Image of Saints Peter and Paul by el Greco

June 29th is the feastday of the Apostles St. Peter and Paul.

The artist Doménikos Theotokópoulos is commonly known as el greco (the Greek). He painted this lovely image of Saint Peter and Paul around the end of the 16th century. You'll notice Paul holding his symbol in art, the sword, and Peter holding his art symbol, the keys of the Catholic Church. The two great Apostles, who are distinctly eyeing the viewer, extend their hands in a manner suggesting they will connect wrists.
