Statue Saint Pierre

Statue Saint Pierre

#20077

An antique cast iron statue of Saint Pierre (Peter), circa 1860, from France. St. Peter was one of the 12 apostles of Jesus and is considered by the Catholic Church to be the first Pope. As he is looking onward, perhaps in contemplation of his thrice betrayal of Christ, his hands are pointing to both himself and in the sign of "blessing or benediction"; perhaps as a symbol of the blessing of Jesus, an indication to the God above, or in a ecclesiastical sign of blessing from St. Peter. This religious icon is a conversation starter and great garden feature.
