Paschal Baylon was a Franciscan Brother that became saint of the Catholic Church. During a smallpox epidemic in Olintepeque, Quetzaltenango, the religious brotherhood that adored San Pascual claim seeing him not dressed as a frail but as a skeleton brandishing a scythe that would end the deadly condition. Since then, people have images of the skeleton to protect themselves against any kind of disease. San Pascual as a standing skeleton wearing a crown and carrying a scythe, the symbol of death; a foot stands on a globe representing the world. The articulated piece rests on a wooden stand. Notice the excellent carved details of the bones that highlight the figure. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS SHIPPING!
