I love this statue of St. Francis, complete with birds and stigmata. Perhaps its style is very much of its time (1962) but I think it conveys quite well what the saint is known for. The ice glazing this day added some nice texture. The statue was donated by a woman with a husband who had a very colorful (very un-Francis like) existence, but even so her gift resulted in a very nice piece of art near the Jewel Box. I found this information from this very helpful page on the statues in Forest Park.
