It is my reinterpretation of a classic woodcut prayer card from the 1800's. The hand gesture of St. Francis has been modernized, the dog was inspired by an actual dog of a homeless individual that I had photographed, while the dove was inspired from another 17th century woodblock print. The face of course is what I imaged St. Francis would have appeared while in "ecstasy" as used in ancient terms. 160300515
