Grace any garden or flower bed with this classic St. Francis sculpture. St. Francis is the patron saint of nature and wildlife. A Franciscan nun once told Deb Carruth that St. Francis was one of the first environmentalists, for his love of all God's creatures was unsurpassed by anyone. His connection with animals in particular was amazing indeed. This saint had been known to preach the Lord's word to birds and be able to quiet flocks during religious ceremonies. He was constantly surrounded by wildlife and brought peace between the savage beasts and the hand of mankind. This saint sculpture can make a beautiful housewarming present, or thoughtful gift for any gardener or animal lover.
