St Maximilian Maria Kolbe

St Maximilian Maria Kolbe


Icon of St Maximilian Maria Kolbe, OFM.

St Maximilian Kolbe (8 January 1894 – 14 August 1941) was a Polish Conventual Franciscan friar who volunteered to die in place of a stranger in Auschwitz. He was active in promoting the veneration of the Virgin Mary.

Kolbe was canonised on 10 October 1982 by John Paul II.  

This is part of the series of religious saints, which derives from a range of sources, including manuscripts, other icons and mosaics. Some icons include 24 carat gold highlights.

St Maximilian Kolbe is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished. 

This is one of a series of religious saints; see my gallery for other images.

The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").
