I design, carve, and cast the pieces myself: they�re wholly original. I cast them in modified gypsum (a very strong building material) with bronze powder. The pieces come boxed, can stand or hang (there's a hook on the back), and can go outside. Each piece comes with a history card stating: "Paschal Baylon (1540-92) was a Franciscan lay brother. Born on the border of Castile and Aragon of a poor shepherd family, he tended flocks as a youth. In his early twenties, he joined his religious order. His charity to the poor and afflicted and his humility and courtesy were extraordinary even by Franciscan standards. He often served as doorkeeper and cook, feeding the other friars and vast numbers of the poor who came to the door of the friary. His ability as a baker and cook--his capacity to take simple ingredients and make delicious food--became legendary. Poorly educated, his counsel was sought by the rich and poor alike. In this small image, Paschal holds a spoon in one hand and three loaves in the other. The piece was handmade by Hank Schlau." Dimensions: 6 (h) x 2 (w) x 1.25 (d) inches
