Slavic Icon depicting Saints Peter and Paul.
Serbian art. Thirteenth century.
in the traditional, medieval technique of painting on panels,
depicts Saints Peter and Paul with Jesus Christ in the center
in lesser proportions, perhaps in an attempt to achieve spatial
perspective. In the lower part, in the center, there is a scene
with a monk being blessed by a bishop. For a long time, the two,
lateral figures were thought to be the brothers Saints Cyril and
Methodius. According to recent studies, the icon dates back to
the thirteenth century.
