This lovely Kateri Tekakwitha Framed Print features the saint with a contemporary styling that has become a popular and loved way of depicting Native Americans in art. A lovely brown wood frame with gold trim complements the artistry beautifully. Kateri Tekakwitha is a newly canonized saint in the Catholic Church, and the very first Native American saint. St. Kateri was the daughter of a Mohawk chief father and a Catholic mother. She was orphaned as a young child and was drawn to the things of God at an early age. She was providentially led to the Jesuit missionaries in the area where she was converted and baptised. She lived from 1656-1680. She endured debilitating illnesses with grace and was known for her life of virtue and prayer.

|Review:||The print itself is lovely; the frame seems likely to fall apart within a few years. I think the value is closer to $30 at the most. The frame is very light. There is no glass/protection over the painting (just fyi). I would have given 5 stars if the packaging had not been done so poorly! It was protected well, in terms of shipping, but the corner protectors (made of cardboard) were STAPLED INTO the back of the frame. Then there is tape over the back as if that is holding the pic in the frame.|
