Item Details

According to the legends, there are two Saint Anthony’s, they can easily be distinguished by their hair. This one is known as Saint Anthony of Padua. He is recognizable by his hair, which is a clerical tonsure. It is practice of cutting or shaving some of all the hair on the scalp as a sign of religious devotion. Saint Anthony was born in 1232 in Lisbon, Portugal. He was a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. Known by his contemporaries for his powerful preaching, expert knowledge of scripture and undying love and devotion to the poor and the sick, he was one of the most quickly canonized saints in church history. Saint Anthony of Padua is also known as patron saint of lost things. The wooden sculpture stands on a wooden block, while the figure is holding the Child in his left hand. His right hand has disappeared. The Child has a lighter shade of brown with nice polychrome, and he is holding a small circular object. The Child has lost his left hand.
