This sculpture was made specifically for an exhibition at a beautiful rural church along the Via Francigena near Gambassi Terme (Florence) and was, therefore, inspired by the story of Saint Francis. Paola Staccioli painted her sculpture with oxides and salts which, thanks to a deliberately uneven clear glaze finish in the second firing, give the sculpture a golden glow.
