Baby Jesus sits on a Bible in his left hand; dressed in the classic Franciscan robe he spreads the Gospel. Notice the golden edges of the beautiful robe and the velvet-like finishing given to it. Carefully carved hair details, fine glass eyes highlighted with real hair made tiny eyelashes and eyebrows give the piece a magnificent presence. The humble look, proper of the Franciscan Order is highlighted with his bare feet. The figure rests in a dark brown stand. Saint Anthony is Patron Saint of medicine; his healing powers have attracted many believers to his cause. He can be invoked for business and money matters; he also helps to find a husband. On June 13th he is turned upside down and 13 pennies are placed in front of him until a mate is found.
