Birds alight on the garments of Saint Francis. Woodworkers of Jesus celebrate the gentle saint whose brotherhood included all creation. In one story, Saint Francis preached to hundreds of birds telling them to be thankful to God for their wonderful clothes, for their independence, and for God's care. The story tells us that the birds stood still as he walked among them, flying off only when he said they could leave. The motifs are painted by hand.
