The portrait was originally accompanied by the inscription: 'Restauratorem Canoniae cerne Sagani / Andream pro aris sollicitumque focis. / Hic, qui Saganensis Capitaneus esse merebat, / Hic fuit et nostri dignus amore Ducis". The Sagan convent saw Andrew as a renewer. He took fatherly care of the church, altars and monastery. He gained respect as a Żagań starost. He enjoyed respect in the monastery and with the duke.
