St. Anthony is known as the “Wonder Worker” for the many miracles and conversions attributed to him. He traveled all over Italy and attracted large crowds of people wherever he went to preach. St. Anthony is often depicted carrying the child Jesus due to the many visions he had of the Christ Child. This statue of St. Anthony holding the infant Jesus is from the Patrons and Protectors collectible statues series. Along with the statue of St. Anthony, patron of the poor and lost articles, is a prayer card invoking his aid and petitions with a beautiful painting of St. Anthony and the Christ Child. The 3.5” Saint Anthony statue comes packaged in a box with the story of St. Anthony and his feast day printed on the back.
