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.
Love this St. Francis Santos! The colors are vibrant and bold. It stands out in my room with my candles and cactus! Highly recommend it.
I have been in search of a St Francis for many years and I wanted the colorful, folk art look. This one is exactly what I wanted. Came quickly, too which was extra nice because it was a birthday gift to myself!
