St Francis of Assisi
About this creation
Perhaps the most famous incident that illustrates the Saint's humility towards nature is recounted in the "Fioretti" ("Little Flowers"), a collection of legends and folklore that sprang up after the Saint's death. It is said that, one day, while Francis was travelling 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."[35] 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, typically in his hand.

Yet another great addition to this series. My favourite bits of this one are the fox, the squirrel, and the knot on St. Francis' belt.

Quoting matt rowntRee One of your finest! I can't get over the fact that each animal is distinct and full of character. The upturned bill on the attentive duck is genius. Love Francis' belt and head. Your stylized trees always add that unique David touch. I would also like to... SQUIRREL!
I think everyone's agreed that the duck is the star of the show.

Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!) You even remembered to give him a tonsure! Funny how we all see what we want to see in builds! I'm a fan of collies and shelties, so I saw a sheltie. But, I'm sure Clayton is correct in seeing a fox which is probably what you meant! :)
He was meant to be a fox, but if he'd been a collie I'd have built him the same way ;)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 it s difficult for me not to like this, lol, my name is francis, and I love animals, but, for the look of the piece, I like that you used color this time, it makes it more exciting to see, funny how some are better black & white, and others colored, well done!
This theme cried out for colour.
