    Did you notice the hand within the lightening bolts?

    In the earliest of religions from the land of UR, Pege (Pegasus) was thought to carry the lightening bolts of Zeus.

    Perhaps St. Paul is the GREATER PEGASUS!

    This, of course, is not a complete answer. Google St. Paul Iconography for further information.

    Saint Paul the Apostle - Died ca. 64

    In the west St. Paul and St. Peter are considered the two most important apostles, and their images are innumerable. St. Paul's career is the subject of much of the Acts of the Apostles, and he himself provides further details in his epistles. Apocryphal sources soon added more narratives, many of which end up in the Golden Legend.

    Since at least the fourth century St. Paul has been portrayed with a long, pointed beard and a receding hairline. See the figure to the left of the seated Christ in the 4th century image at left and this example from the 13th century. I have seen only one image in which he has a full head of hair.

    His attributes are the sword he was killed with and a closed book representing the epistles that he wrote (example). Sometimes instead of a book we will see St. Paul holding a letter (example) or a whole sheaf of letters (example) representing the epistles. Artists usually ignore the tradition that St. Paul was short of stature (exception).

    Among narrative paintings, favorite topics are St. Paul's conversion (example) and execution (example). Many other narrative episodes derive not from scripture but from the hagiographies listed below.

    sorry don't mean to highjack this thread, please ignore and carry on people.

    I was wondering about the hand sign. Some gang affiliation? Secret society?

    In Brazil it means something much worse but I will leave you to guess what that is ;)

    He could be a Jaffa ancestor.

    Teal'c is a Jaffa who is one of the leading authorities on the Goa'uld on Earth. Once serving the System Lord Apophis as his First Prime, Teal'c defected in the series premiere, "Children of the Gods", and returned with SG-1 to the SGC. He has since been a valued member of SG-1, and, since the Goa'uld's fall from power, a member of the Jaffa High Council.

    That double bubble over their heads looks like the top half of a heart, don't you think?
