***This Saint Felicity doll will be made after purchase. Please allow up to two weeks for shipment. This item will resemble the photos essentially but will be different and therefore one of a kind. If you wish to have a photo sent before it is shipped just notify me.*** The last photo is to show the size of this peg doll in a child's hands.
This is a large peg doll about 3 1/2" inches tall of St. Felicity of Carthage. She is painted with non-toxic acrylic paint and non toxic sealer. On the back I have painted her name as well as PRAY FOR US.
"Felicitas, who was eight months pregnant, was apprehensive that she would not be permitted to suffer martyrdom with the others, since the law forbade the execution of pregnant women, but two days before the games she gave birth to a daughter, who was adopted by a Christian woman. On the day of the games, the five were led into the amphitheatre. At the demand of the crowd they were first scourged; then a boar, a bear, and a leopard, were set on the men, and a wild cow on the women. Wounded by the wild animals, they gave each other the kiss of peace and were then put to the sword. "But Perpetua, that she might have some taste of pain, was pierced between the bones and shrieked out; and when the swordsman's hand wandered still (for he was a novice), herself set it upon her own neck. Perchance so great a woman could not else have been slain (being feared of the unclean spirit) had she not herself so willed it." So end the Acta.
Thanks for looking and God bless!
