Hooded St. Francis Garden Statue
Our Hooded St. Francis Garden Statue offers another artistic interpretation of the patron saint of animals. In this example, St. Francis is shown in robes with a raised hood. He holds a small bird in his right hand and his gaze is directed Heavenward. Handcrafted in the USA of solid cast-stone, this vintage-style statue is made with integrated coloring and is sealed for outdoor use. This St. Francis statue is finished in a "sedona" color which resembles the orange-ish hue of terra cotta.
Commonly known as the patron saint of animals—particularly birds—and the environment as a whole, Francis of Assisi (born Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone) lived from 1182 to 1226. He referred to all creatures as his "brothers" and "sisters" and was even known to preach to the birds. Displaying this hooded St. Francis statue in your garden is a sure sign to local wildlife that you are an animal lover.
