Item details Handmade Material hand painted cast stone Dimensions Height: 9.5 Inches; Width: 4.5 Inches; Depth: 2.5 Inches I design, carve, and cast the pieces myself. 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, which is flat), and can go outside. Each piece comes with a history card stating: "St. Hildegard (1098-1179), an abbess and foundress of a Benedictine community, was also �an author and theologian; prophet and preacher; musician and composer; poet and artist; doctor and pharmacist.� Throughout her life she had a series of visions that she described in her illustrated book Scivias. The visions show human beings, the universe, and all creatures as �sparks� of God�s love. Her poetry and music are further expressions of this vision. She also wrote two treatises on medicine and �stands as one of the great figures in the history of women in medicine.� She did all this during a time in which women were accorded little respect as artists and intellectuals, yet the effects of Hildegard�s experiments and advancements in music, art, and healing continue to this day. This small statue of Hildegard was hand carved by Hank Schlau and hand painted by Karen Schlau." Dimensions: 9.5 (h) x 2.5 x 2
