St. Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals and a favorite symbol for harmony between all living things. The statue is crafted from Fiberstone, a mixture of sand and stone that's reinforced with an ultra-strong fiberglass backing. Each sculpture is individually hand finished to resemble stone with a touch of moss, adding a charming authenticity. The sculpture is lightweight, less fragile than concrete, safe for outdoor use in all weather conditions, and will not crack or chip in freezing temperatures. Made by Orlandi Statuary.
