The Stefaneschi Triptych (verso)

c. 1330
Tempera on panel, 220 x 245 cm
Pinacoteca, Vatican

This side of the triptych, with Peter, the prince of the Church, enthroned at its center, is constructed as if it were the cross-section of a church with a five-aisled nave: below the arcades of the side aisles the apostles James and Paul are standing on the left, with Andrew and John on the right.
