This release depicts the bronze statue of St. Peter in the Vatican, a work by Arnolfo di Cambio (1240-1310 ca).

This ancient statue of St. Peter, in all likelihood for the Jubilee of 1300, is placed against the pillar of St. Longinus, above an alabaster base in the Basilica. St. Peter is portrayed seated and offering a blessing while holding the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Behind it, there is what seems to be a fine brocade tapestry, however, it is actually a mosaic. Imitating a brocatello drapery, the mosaic was placed behind the statue in 1871.

Visitors to the Vatican and who pass by the beloved statue will notice the feet are famously worn down; this has occurred over the centuries from the constant kissing and touching by the faithful. When celebratory vestments are not displayed on the statue, St. Peter is sculpted and shown in pontifical robes similar to those formerly worn by the pope during the 14th century.
