Andrew exits the boat first rather
than his brother Peter. Perhaps this
is because of his Greek title protokletos,
"first-called," in reference to the events in John 1:35-41.
Or it could be because
Andrew is the church's patron saint. The
treatment of the latter's beard and bushy mustache
depart significantly from the canonical manner of portraying Christ, as does the cope. The
portrait of Andrew does have the conventional long
beard, and of Peter the usual short, square one.
main image is a Man of Sorrows, again with a
bushier mustache than one usually sees in this iconographical type or indeed
in any images of Christ.
