Wooden Framed Retablo of St. Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of Animals 26561
A 13” tall hand-painted and framed wooden retablo with a center image of St. Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of Animals.
Retablos are painted depictions of important religious icons and are found throughout the Americas as well as Europe. Nichos are wooden frames or boxes – much like a shadow box – which is used to either frame an iconic image or to serve as a mini-altar.
Our nicho-style retablo is carved from wood with a one-inch deep frame just deep enough to hold tiny offerings such as Milagros, photos or religious medals.
The interior of the nicho features a hand-painted depiction of St. Francis of Assisi and the frame of the nicho is beautifully painted as well. Vibrant colors were used on this hand-crafted folk art piece including teal blue, gold, yellow, toffee and brown.
It measures 13” in height, 6” in width and is ready to hang.
