Jacopo di Cione, The Crucifixion of St. Peter
Tempera and gold on wood panel
Pincoteca Vaticana, Rome
Images of St. Peter's death always show him crucified upside-down. So far I have seen only
one other image with an angel bringing Peter a palm branch, the symbol of martyrdom, but most likely there are others.
Until the 16th century it was more common to show St. Peter affixed to the cross by ropes, but in this case the men use nails and blood flows plentifully from the saint's hands.
