Saint Daniel of Padua was martyred in 168 AD. His works were forgotten until almost 10 centuries later when he became the beloved patron of prisoners and those who have lost their way. He is also known to protect soldiers and their spouses who await their soldiers' return.
Created by traditional Filipino artisans, this primitive style devotional figure has been crafted of wood and resin. Historically, santeros (those who carve religious images) create statues of holy figures such as Jesus, Mary and the saints with a harmonious blend of European Christian form, Asian styling and Filipino primitive art. Our Santo Daniel measures 2-1/4 inches wide by 4-3/4 inches high.
