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,
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.
