Saint Luke the Physician
This plaque depicts Saint Luke painting (or “writing”) an icon. Luke was traditionally depicted as a “writer” of many icons of the Virgin Mary and Child. The ox in the lower left corner of the plaque is a symbol of the Gospel of Luke. Christian tradition has long assigned each of the four “living creatures” that surround the throne of God (Revelation 4:7) to the four Evangelists: the symbol of Matthew is the human (angel), the symbol of Mark is the lion, the symbol of Luke is the ox and the symbol of John is the eagle. The flask in the lower right is a symbol of the healing oil or medicament used by Luke the physician. On the right side of the plaque is the staff of Aesculapius (Asklepios), an ancient Greek symbol of healing (for more on this, see the History/Story tab).
