The tears of Saint Peter- An expression in pure humillity.


It is a painting symbolising betrayal, regret and remorse. It tells a story of a disciple betraying his master and more so, a friend betraying the deepest of friends. For appreicators of art, the Tears of Saint Peter is a symbol of all the elements of regret, humility and remorse that define people as a whole.


This canvas was probably the object of much devotion, in some temple or hermitage, by a devotional worshippers who came to this image in aid of their spiritual needs.
