      They were commissioned for a private collection…………I don’t expect that they will be exhibited. But, then again one never knows. I have found that life is full of surprises!

    What is St. Paul holding? Scrolls? They are beautiful.

  3. Janet Simonovich says:

    When it comes to iconic religious figures such as these, do you choose the colors of their clothing and what will be applied on them such as crosses and/or geometric shapes, or do you rely on another source of historical interpretation?

    • Andrij Maday says:

      Great question!

      The color of the clothing (as is the case with color of hair and type of beard) is pretty much dictated by manuals handed down through the ages. This insures that the likness of the individual is true and that the “story” is correctly told and retold!

    I like the fact that preserving the colors for them are meant to preserve their story.
