Imagery and Representation: shown as Dominican friar with book. Hand carved in Maple wood and hand painted by professional artists. Made in Italy. St. Martin was born in 1579 in Lima (Peru) and entered the Dominican Order at the age of fifteen. There, he worked as a barber, farm laborer, infirmaries and almoner. He also cared for the sick and poor and even established a hospital at his sister's house. The difference between the other hospitals was that in this hospital, people of different skin-color were not separated. St. Martin de Porres was always in touch with the Rose of Lima.
