Very Special Antique Statue of St. Sebastian dating from the late 19th century. Wonderful model in hand carved wood. We purchased this statue in France, condition is very good to exceptional for its age. Unfortunately there were no arrows when found. Once the statue arrives in the US we may attempt to design a few arrows for this wonderful piece. Splendid piece of religious history offering the best in hand carved detail.

Saint Sebastian (died c. 288) was an early Christian saint and martyr. According to Christian belief, he was killed during the Roman emperor Diocletian's persecution of Christians. He is commonly depicted in art and literature tied to a post or tree and shot with arrows. Despite this being the most common artistic depiction of Sebastian, he was, according to legend, rescued and healed by Irene of Rome. Shortly afterwards he criticized Diocletian in person and as a result was clubbed to death. He is venerated in the Catholic and Orthodox Churches. The details of Saint Sebastian's martyrdom were first spoken of by 4th-century bishop Ambrose of Milan (Saint Ambrose), in his sermon (number 22) on Psalm 118. Ambrose stated that Sebastian came from Milan and that he was already venerated there at that time. Saint Sebastian is a popular male saint, especially among athletes
