St. Andrew was a fisherman and one of the apostles. He is the patron of Scotland and golfers because of his connection with the town of St. Andrews. Stories hold that relics of the saint were brought to Scotland sometime before the 8th century and were eventually enshrined at the medieval cathedral at St. Andrews. From the towers of the cathedral one can see the Old Course–the birthplace of golf–and early histories of golf mention players entreating the saint for assistance as they played the windblown links.
In this statue, which was handmade by Hank Schlau, Andrew in one hand holds an image of part of the remains of his cathedral, much of which was destroyed during the Reformation; in his other hand he holds a stick of the type shepherds and fishermen have often used in work and play.
This one of a kind figure is completely hand made by Hank Schlau and hand painted by his wife Karen Schlau. Made of durable material that can be displayed both indoors and outdoors.
