Sandblasting gold printing with the Apostles Peter and Paul

Two of the most important figures of Christianity, the Apostles Peter and Paul, are represented in this lithograph. The Apostle Peter was the leader of the Apostles and Jesus called him Cepha (Cephas in Aramaic and Peter in Greek), which means Petra, wanting to emphasize the stability of his character. He was married and resided in Capernaum. However, there are no clear sources about his course and martyrdom.

The Apostle Paul, Apostle to the Gentiles, as he was called, does not belong to the twelve Apostles. He was recognized as an equal apostle and saint when he was later called by the Lord Himself. From an ardent persecutor of Christ and Christians, by divine intervention, he eventually turned into an ardent preacher of the Gospel.
