The Delaney Turner Collection, Item #008

"Cedar Saint," circa 2007

Purchased with much enthusiasm in San Antonio de Ibarra, Ecuador, this "Cedar Saint" is indicative of the craftsmanship of the many local artisans (the village is  renowned for its carvings of both sacred and secular objects).  Currently, this Saint stands in silent prayer on the owner's dresser, no doubt bestowing his blessings on assorted socks, sweaters and underwear.
