This solid bronze Saint Walburga Plaque is a fitting gift to celebrate the feast day of St. Walburga of Heidenheim on February 25th (or May 1st, the date of her canonization). This is indeed an ideal birthday gift, feast day gift, or confirmation gift for that “Walburga” in your life.
A Bronze Wall Plaque in Three Sizes
This bronze plaque is available in three sizes – small (p121k, 2 x 1.8 inches), medium (p116m, 3.75 x 3 inches), and large (p249g, 7.9 x 6.3 inches). It hangs easily on the wall at home in the kitchen or bedroom, or at work in the office. This solid bronze plaque was conceived and executed by a master bronzesmith in Germany.
Apostle to Germany
This plaque depicts St. Walburga (niece of St. Boniface, the Apostle to Germany) holding a book and a flask of oil. The book – an account of her brother Winibald’s life and his travels in Palestine – is why she is often called the first female author of both England and Germany. The flask of oil refers to the “oil” which, after her death, exuded from her bones that had been laid to rest in a rocky niche in Eichstätt, Germany. This oil and its miraculous healing properties drew pilgrims to shrine. This plaque is an ideal gift for St. Walburga’s feast day gift (February 25th or May 1st), for a birthday, and especially for confirmation.
