SAINT RAPHAEL THE ARCHANGEL STATUE - 8 3/4"
This is a magnificent statue of St. Raphael the Archangel, one of only three angels that Sacred Scripture has revealed by their proper name. Raphael, from the Hebrew (rapha - to heal) and (el - God) means "God heals" or the "Divine Healer".

St. Raphael is depicted as strong and majestic, kneeling on one knee holding a spear with the symbol for medicine on the top and water gourds.
Measures 8½”W x 8¾”H x 3½”D.
