The icon shows St. Peter and St. Paul in their traditional iconography - Peter with white hair and beard and Paul - with dark hair, beard and high front symbolizing his wit. Peter holds keys, Paul - Evangile/Gospel. Christ says: “You are Peter, stone and on this stone I shall build my church“. Both saints hold in their hands in-between a small church - symbolizing that they are the creators of the Christian church. The inscriptions are in Greek.
