This Gothic Saint Peter panel in the 16th century is a decorative panel.
It features an image of Saint Peter, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and the first bishop of Rome, who is often depicted holding keys as a symbol of his authority to forgive sins. The Gothic style, popular in the 12th to 16th centuries, was characterized by ornate decoration, pointed arches, and intricate tracery.
Firebacks from this period are valuable and rare artifacts, as many such items were destroyed.
