Mural: Peter and Paul

A yin-and-yang roundel with portraits of St Peter and St Paul. These two saints, who share a feast day on June 29, are often shown together as founders of the church, representing the Jewish element in Peter, and the Gentile in Paul. Late 13th-century wall painting in the nave of Black Bourton Church, Oxfordshire, England.
