More info

Fiberglass statue, internally empty and very light. It is suitable to be carried during the processions. The manufacturing is entirely manual. When the two parts are linked, there is the finishing of the statue and it is perfectly smoothed, then the statue goes through the coloring section. The skilled decorators hand paint using particolar varnishes, conforming to the traditional iconography. The fiberglass is a plastic material, very resistant and humidity absorber which is used in many sectors: industry, furnitures, building of boats, airplanes, vehicles, garden swimmingpool etc.

Storia

Saint John the Baptist, prophet and martyr, is commemorated on the 24th of June and on the 29th of August.

He was born in the 5 century B.C in Jerusalem to Elizabeth and Zechariah. He died in 35. About him Jesus said: “Between the sons of a woman, no one is greater than John”.

His activity as a precursor is described in the four gospels.

Saint John is one of the most popular saint. His life in the desert fascinated many monks  and for this he was one of the principal patrons of the monastic orders.

He was martyrized and behaded.

In the classic iconography he is illustrated wearing some leather of sheep, with a walking stick, a shell with which he poured the water on the head of Christ, with a lamb.

He is considered the patron of the tailors and the prisoners.
