St Francis of Assisi

St Francis of Assisi


Icon of St Francis of Assisi.

St Francis of Assisi, born Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone, abandoned a life of luxury for a life devoted to Christianity after hearing the voice of God telling him to rebuild the church and live in poverty. He is the patron saint of animals and the environment..

St Francis founded the men's Order of Friars Minor, the women's Order of Saint Clare, the Third Order of Saint Francis and the Custody of the Holy Land.

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 Francis 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").
