St Peter is modelled on Peter, one of the twelve apostles from the New Testament and leaders of the early Christian church. Referred to as the ‘Prince of the Apostles’ by Pope Gregory, Melissa has referenced him here as a medieval day religious figure with his richly presented robes trimmed in gold leaf and glazed, stylised curls, which reference his red hair. She has also referenced man in the screen printed anatomical drawings on his robes, alluding to the ‘human condition’ and a reference to its associated suffering.
