Work

Sculpted in wood

This sculpture represents Saint Anthony accompanied by his pig. Anthony became the patron saint of swineherds, due to the reported relationship a pig had with him in keeping him attuned to the hours of the day for his prayers, one of several animals who played a role in his life. Thus he is most frequently represented as accompanied by this pig.
