We purchased this piece to blend with other aspects of our butterfly garden. When it arrived we were amazed by the detailing, From the animals to the figure of St. Francis and the rough bark of the log it really has to be seen to be believed.
Due to the nature of our garden, we decided we wanted the statue to be more life like. We hired a local artist and gave him instructions to make the figure 'Italian' and in his later years. Hence the swarthy skin tones accentuated wrinkles and salt and pepper hair.
He loved painting the piece which took him less than two weeks, because of the fine details and clean casting.
Everyone who has seen St. Francis reigning over our garden ensconced on his log beneath his tree has marveled at the small details of finger and toe nails, folds on the robe and eyes that seem to see into your soul.
If you need a focal point for a special natural feature, you could do worse than allow the patron saint of animals and the environment to humbly share the scene.

We bought this as a gift to our mother for her 95th birthday, then donated it to our mother's long term care facility after her death two weeks ago. It will go at the outside entrance once we get the pavers and other landscaping done. It's in the dining hall currently and loved by all the residents. All who see it marvel at its beauty and uniqueness. It truly is lovely. Before Mom died she thanked us for the gift and said "He's my favorite Saint." We would definitely buy from them again.

In the backyard of our home in Texas, we have a free form swimming pool. In back of the swimming pool there is a small plot of property with three Palm Trees with space that was lacking something beautiful. We now have St. Francis sitting under the Palm Trees overlooking the pool and backyard. Absolutely beautiful and captivating to the beholder.

We bought this statue for a terraced, wooded area on our property where we have a trail, stone walls, and a stone bench. The size was just right (about ¾-life-size), but it seemed too shiny-white, like a cast-concrete statue. So I spent $30 more on 2 cans of Valspar "Ancient Ruins" Stone Spray Paint and 1 can of Clear Sealer at Lowes. The statue now looks like pebbled limestone--much more "natural" than the original smooth white. It should darken even more with age. One piece of advice: when the box arrives, open it, take out the pieces, and carry them individually to where you're going to assemble them. Don't try to move the whole box--it's too big and heavy for one person.

My Parents really admired this statue on the Design Toscano website, and recently purchased a new home. We purchased this St. Francis statue as a house warming gift for them and they were so happy. The statue arrived delivered by freight, was carefully and professionally packaged, and, we were informed that the delivery driver was most helpful and courteous. The statue was easily assembled and displayed by my parents, and seeing how happy they were to receive this, made it all worth while. We would definitely purchase another item from Design Toscano, the quality, the design and professionalism speaks volumes. Stacy Shillan

I had admired this statue for so long, but such a beautiful and expensive statue needs the "perfect" place to be showcased, and for quite some time, I did not have "that" place. Then my husband and I cleared out the "circle" in our circular driveway, and lo and behold, at last, the perfect place to display the St. Francis I'd wanted for so long. We decided to make a "grotto" within which to house our statue. Obviously, it is an expensive purchase, so we want to protect our investment as best we can. After a month's efforts, our statue is now on display, and it is breathtaking and an honor to have St. Francis' likeness gracing our front yard. I did add a few "extra" little cement critters that hold special meaning to us, but they in no way detract from the beauty of the original statue. We hope that we are blessed with many years within which to enjoy our beautiful St. Francis.
