Stained glass depicting St. Peter (German, c. 1480-85), Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 21 July 2013. From the wall text:

St Peter holds his usual attribute, the Key of Heaven. Circular glass panels of this sort were inserted into windows in both secular and ecclesiastical buildings. The image here is based on engravings by the artist Martin Schongauer. Its intimate scale suggests that the panel was meant to be seen at close quarters.
