Our Saint Francis of Assisi with Birds Plaque is a gorgeous solid bronze piece of art showing St. Francis surrounded by birds. This solid bronze plaque measures 8 inches in length and 4.5 inches in width. It is designed to hang on any wall and can be displayed indoors or out.
A Solid Bronze Plaque of “Il Poverello” (The Poor One)
This plaque, created in a foundry in Germany, is a beautiful depiction of the world’s favorite saint, and the ideal gift for those who love St. Francis. Though he was born to a wealthy family, St. Francis (1181-1226) lived a very simple life ministering to the poor. He is also the Patron Saint of animals and the environment; his feast day is celebrated on October 4th. On this plaque, Francis preaches to the birds. Francis, who could find God in all of God’s creation, is honored as the patron saint of animals, ecology, the environment, the city of San Francisco, the Archdiocese of Denver and the state of Colorado (among others).
When Cardinal Bergoglio of Buenos Aires became pope in 2013, he took the name “Francis,” and, like St. Francis, is active on behalf of the poor.
