St. Francis

Collection: Publicly Owned
St. Francis

Sponsor: Edmond Visual Arts Commission partnered with Church of the Good Shepherd

St. Francis is shown seated on a large log on top of an approx. 4 ft. high concrete foundation. He is located by the large church sign near Boulevard, on the west side of the church.

In this sculpture, St. Francis wears sandals and a long robe with a rope belt. The robe and hood are draped at the back of his shoulders. His right hand rests on his right leg, and his left hand is held up in front of him, with a bird resting on his forefinger. St. Francis and the bird are looking at each other. His head is tilted slightly to the left. St. Francis has a gentle look on his face as he gazes at the bird on his hand.

In March 2011 the sculpture was vandalized, and two birds stolen. One was found in the parking lot, and the other later returned to the same spot. The birds have not yet been repaired and placed back on the sculpture, but will be soon.
