Antique 19th century Italian wood bust of St. Francis of Assisi, likely removed from a statue. This bust has a gorgeous crackle finish, lifelike glass eyes, and an expression of peace and serenity. As the patron saint of animals and our fair city of San Francisco, St. Francis holds a special place in our hearts.

The bust can be removed from the custom wood base and glass cloche.  We added a few decorations - natural fan coral, a shell and a vintage wood rosary - inside the cloche.  All of these decorations are included with purchase, and can also be removed if you prefer.
