Long revered as the patron saint of animals and nature, St. Francis of Assisi is also the patron saint of ecology. Our wish is for people of any faith or tradition to find inspiration and hope in St. Francis’s model of careful stewardship and respect for the natural world.
This rustic wooden santos depicts St. Francis in a robe adorned with flowers, accompanied by a spotted cat and birds that have perched to hear his preaching. Carved using only hand tools in multigenerational Mayan Quiche workshop in Chichicastenango, Guatemala.
Please note: St. Francis’s arm arrives detached for shipping. Just gently push it back together and adjust as you like. Colors may vary slightly with this handcrafted work of folk art.
Loved this St. Francis, since I am a devotee of this Saint, I have a few that I have picked up throughout my travels. Loved the colors and brightness of him as well as the 2 birds on his shoulder. Delivered quickly and beautifully packaged.
This joyful St Francis is beautiful, delightful and unique. It was a gift for my husband and he absolutely loves it! It is even lovelier than I expected.
I ordered this hand carved figure of St Frances. There were two of them but I like the red outfit and the arms outstretched. It is tall enough to make a statement. I haven't given it to my daughter as yet but she loves birds. This is wonderful gift for her..
