Saint Francis

When I first found this piece of wood, I knew what it represented to me.  I saw a being that takes the step, he moves into our world, arms outstretched in a blessing of Peace.  The metal background is the cloistered place that he has wandered out of.  The birds are safe; they adore and adorn him.  He is one of them, one of us, bridging the space between two worlds through Love.
