Custom natural marble statue | Life-size stone sculpture
Slender, towering, and elegant, this saintly marble statue is appropriately divine: it depicts Saint Charbel of Lebanon, known for his miraculous deeds of healing and prayer. Standing tall with his hands out and his head bowed, St. Charbel attends to his sacred work with a demeanor of calm, reassured confidence in his powers.
Equally as confident is the artist who crafted this marble masterpiece: not only has the likeness of Charbel (who, alive in the late nineteenth century, was the subject of some early photographic techniques) but also his signature tranquility and his silent strength. His beard curls down long from his chin towards his chest, and his robes flow in rippling fabric over his bare feet, all rendered from real marble stone.
