|Title||:||Antique Wooden Carving of St. Francis, Santo w/ Custom Base, 13.5”|
This carving represents one of the greatest and most well-loved saints in all of Christianity and the founder of the men’s Franciscan Order, the women’s Order of St. Claire and the lay Third Order of St. Francis. Probably most well known as the patron saint of all animals, he is easily identified here with his trademark tonsure and Franciscan habit
Evidently an old carving, it is mounted on a customized wooden base giving it an excellent stance and a good choice for putting up on a shelf.
|Measurement||:||It measures 13.5 inches in height (including the base) and 4.4 inches across.|
|Condition||:||In Good Condition|
|Weight||:||approximately 800 grams|
