Faraway Garden St Francis of Assisi
“For it is in giving that we receive.” St Francis of Assisi
Faraway Garden St Francis of Assisi is one of our guardian statues as he is the patron saint of animals and natural environment, therefore a perfect addition to any garden setting. He is pictured below in Sepia.
St Francis lived during the early Renaissance period and many tales exist of his influence as he moved around. An account describes how one day, while Francis was traveling with some companions, they happened upon a place in the road where birds filled the trees on either side. Francis told his companions to "wait for me while I go to preach to my sisters the birds." The birds surrounded him, intrigued by the power of his voice, and not one of them flew away. He is often portrayed with a bird in his hand.
Over many years, statues have played a prominent role as focal points in gardens. From the most grand and ornate gardens with large figures, to small creatures in a naturalistic setting, statues bring life and surprise to a garden.
