Saint Peter as Pope - France - 15th century

This carved stone head depicts St. Peter as a pope, with the threetiered
papal crown and a large beard typical of St. Peter
iconography. This medieval sculpture was created in the 15th
century. In Western art, St. Peter is depicted with a large curly
beard, making him an instantly recognizable figure in religious
works.
This headgear first appeared in religious images in the ninth
century, when papal headdresses began to take the form of a large
white cap. However, the appearance of multiple layers on this
headdress did not begin until the 14th century. The Roman
Catholic Church considers him to be the first bishop of Rome,
which is why St. Peter is depicted this way, to assert his papal
primacy.
