Saint Francis of Assisi, Small Wooden Santo Red Tones, Religious Handmade Folk Art 5" x 7.5"

Hand-carved with a machete by Guatemalan artists called "santeros", this wooden santo is the beloved San Francisco - Saint Francis of Assisi.  He was the founder of the Order of Franciscans, and the patron saint of animals, plants, and in fact, all living things.  Stories of Saint Francis' ability to communicate with animals abound, including the birds that stayed to listen to his sermon, and the wolf that promised not to raid village farms if, in turn the villagers fed him. (A deal by which both the villagers and the wolf were said to have abided.) Saint Francis taught that all of Creation is worthy of our stewardship, and he practiced what he preached. He tended to the needs of all, regardless of race, culture, status, or species. How can you not love a saint like that?
