26 x 19 in
The apostles bear no names. Identification has been made by examination of the images for symbols associated with each of them. More weight has been given to tradition than to theological scholarships because Dali would not have been aware of the latter. James the Lessor was Bishop of Jerusalem. In the Knights of the Round Table the piece has been given the name “Vicar of Britain”.
