CHRIST WITH ST. FRANCIS COLD CAST BRONZE STATUE
A striking statue modeled after the classic painting, "St. Francis Embracing Christ on the Cross", by Bartolome Esteban Murillo. A popular meditation for Franciscans, this statue depicts Jesus reaching down from the cross to embrace St. Francis if to allow him the privilege of sharing in His redemptive suffering. Two years before his death, St. Francis received in his hands, feet and side the Sacred Wounds from Our Lord's own body. This beautiful statue is made of cold-cast bronze with light hand-painted contrast colors.
