St Euphrosynos the cook is found, in the middle on the night, in Heaven, holding a branch of heavenly apples. On the bottom right his name and profession- the cook (Aghios/ Saint Efrosynos – o Magiros) written in Greek. He is dressed in simple clothes somehow rough and peasant-like as his story dictates. A most moving story of one night in Paradise.
