I carved the original of the statue in clay and cast each piece myself. My wife paints each one by hand. Each piece comes boxed and with a card stating the following:

Born into an aristocratic family, Ignatius (1491-1556) as a young man became a soldier, a career that ended when he was struck in the leg by a cannonball. He was taken prisoner and went through an extended and painful recuperation, during which he began to read the lives of the saints. He devoted himself to study and penance, and eventually began laying the groundwork for the Order he would found, the Jesuits. From the beginning, the Order emphasized education of both its priests and the laity. Under Ignatius’s guidance, the Jesuits began building schools and churches throughout Europe, Asia, and the New World. In this small statue, Ignatius is shown at his desk, writing to his far-flung colleagues. A globe, symbolizing the world reach of the Order, sits before him. Above him are depictions of the facades of two Jesuit churches in New Orleans, to the left the church at Loyola University (which contains an Ignatius chapel) and to the right the Jesuit church on Baronne St. Below Ignatius is the Jesuit logo, IHS. The piece was handmade by Hank Schlau and hand painted by Karen Schlau in the workshop of In the Company of Saints in Natchez, MS.

Dimensions: 3 (h) x 2.5 (w) x .75 (d) inches
