The St. Barbara Statue is produced by the Pasquini family of artisans, who we discovered during a recent buying trip to Italy. The Pasquini artisans have been crafting relgilous works of art for over 30 years and are well-known throughout the world for their attention to detail and stunning creations.According to legend, St. Barbara was imprisoned in a tower from a young age and learned to accept Christianity from reading the Church Fathers. Her father turned her into the authorities and they ordered her father to kill her. He then captured her, after she attempted escape, tortured her, and then killed her. Legend also holds that the father was killed by lightening after killing St. Barbara. The amount of this legend which can be trusted is very uncertain. The St. Barbara Statue is small enough to fit into most any area in your local parish, home, or office. This lovely statue also makes a great gift.

|Review:||The statue was lovely. I was very pleased with it and proud to present it to my granddaughter who loved it. I would have ordered a 10" statue if a larger size was available but to find a pretty St. Barbara in any size was a surprise and much appreciated.|
