About this work
With one hand Jesus points to the keys Peter is holding; with the other he points to a part of a flock of lambs; this refers to Christ's instruction, "Feed my lambs" to Peter following the resurrection (John 21.15) Bible. N.T. Matthew 16.18-19. Miniatures in the border show Saint Peter with the keys and Saint John the Baptist with a reed cross
