This is a very elegant depiction of Saint Christopher carrying Jesus as a child on his left shoulder, a Great Staff in his right hand, holding his mantle with his left, as he wades through the waves of a stream. Showing all classic features. Absolutely marvelous. This sculpture is hand carved in selected Maple wood and hand painted by professional artists. This Saint Christopher figurine is available in many sizes, up to statue proportions. Saint Christopher is usually represented as a strongly built, bearded, middle aged man, leaning on a staff, with the Holy Child on his shoulder.
Although Christopher was never mentioned in the Bible, he takes a prominent place among the Saints. His cult is mainly based on legend and confined to local calendars. His fame derives from the pious legend of him being a "Christ-bearer". Legends tell of him living near a dangerous stream and carrying others safely across. One day he offered to help a small child. The child was almost too heavy for him to bear, and is later revealed to be Jesus (who bore the weight of the world's sins on his shoulder. Saint Christopher’s selfless service to travelers at the stream led to his patronage of all things related to travel and travelers.
