75.00

Approximately 13" tall

Antique chalkware figure of Saint Rita of Cascia, patron saint of lost and impossible causes. One of her attributes is a wound in the middle of her forehead; this alludes to a spontaneous wound that is said to have appeared there, evoking the crown of thorns, while she was meditating on an image of the crucified christ at the age of 60.

This piece has minor chips and wear commensurate with age.
