Made of a highly detailed cast stone and finish to perfection. Wonderful for the home or garden. St. Francis holds a bowl where you can add your bird seed or water. Wonderful gift or display for church. Italian patron saint of animals and charitable deeds. St. Francis (1182-1226) reflects in each exquisite detail the original artist's loving reverence for the gentle Patron Saint of Italy. Juxtaposed with the lush greens of your garden, it will evoke the pastoral splendor of Italy where St. Francis himself walked, communing with the Divine Spirit manifested in the world of nature. Who better to feed your birds than St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment. Carruth's classic St. Francis plaque is now available as a birdfeeder. This sculpture is a great gift, and a must have for Carruth collectors. He will brighten the day of both the recipient and their feathered friends, and will watch over their yard for years to come.
