This unique, and individually hand-painted depiction of St. Patrick is charming and reverent: a perfect gift for a Patrick or Patricia or to celebrate St. Patrick’s feast day on March 17th each year! Made by an artist in Poland using a technique called “reverse oil on glass,” this painting is radiant with vivid colors, eye-catching patterns and beautiful symbolism. Each painting is one-of-a-kind so will differ slightly from the painting pictured here–that’s the charm of owning an original work of art!
A Painting Celebrating the Life of St. Patrick
This painting is a great Irish gift; meaningful, respectful and full of history and tradition. It shows St. Patrick with the shamrock in his hand. He used this shamrock to explain the concept of the Trinity to the people of Ireland. The shamrock, just like the Trinity, is a unity made of three parts. He is also shown with his bishop’s crosier, reminding us of his role as shepherd.
Legends about Patrick abound; but truth is best served by our seeing two of his most important qualities: he was humble and courageous. The determination to accept suffering and success with equal indifference guided the life of this man who was an instrument of God’s love and word.
This saint painting is a beautiful addition to your home and celebrates both St. Patrick, and the resilient spirit of the Irish.
