St. Francis with Birds, Handmade Medal

18.00

I carved the original in clay and cast the piece in lead-free pewter. They can be used as pendants or on key chains. Each piece comes in a jewelry pouch with a history card stating the following:

Many stories tell of Francis being a close friend with animals: stories of a pheasant who for years strolled in and out of Francis’s cell, of his bond with the wolf of Gubbio, of his ordering Franciscans to “see to it that the bees would be provided with honey in winter, lest they should die during the cold weather,” of his persuading hunters to release turtledoves they had caught; of his delivering a sermon to birds.... This small lead-free pewter medal of Francis was handmade by Hank Schlau at In the Company of Saints.

Dimensions: 1 inch (h) x 3.4 (w)
