Saint Carpus, One of the Seventy

The Apostle Carpus was one of the Seventy sent out by Christ (Luke 10). St. Paul mentioned him in his second letter to Timothy. He was the bishop of Veroea in northern Greece. I was inspired by the Macedonian School of iconography, especially the stunning frescoes of St. Clement of Ohrid (AD 1295) for this icon: http://www.orthodoxy-icons.com/frescoes/105-the-frescoes-of-the-church-perivlepty-ohrid-macedonia-1295-part-ii.html
