This devotional solid bronze plaque depicts St. Francis of Assisi, highlighting his rapport with animals and his gentleness. As the namesake of Pope Francis, we can see much in the humble dedication to poverty and deep spirituality of St. Francis’ life that are rejuvenating the world of Christianity today.
This round plaque measuring 3.75 inches in diameter features a simply elegant style of casting, eschewing extreme detail for contours that express the profound simplicity of nature, which Francis found so appealing. The plaque is made of solid bronze, delicately textured, with the plants and animals seeming to burst from the plaque. The scene itself reflects the words from St. Francis’ famous “Canticle of the Sun” (see the “history” tab for words). The St. Francis of Assisi plaque is hand-made in Germany, reflecting the spirituality of the artist.
A Gift to Celebrate Nature, Pope Francis, and St. Francis
This plaque is extremely versatile. It can be mounted on any wall, or placed on a desk or nightstand. Because of this versatility and the broad appeal of St. Francis, his views on nature and poverty, and his inspiration to Pope Francis, the plaque makes for a great gift for nearly any occasion.
