Exactly as described, but even more beautiful in real life than it looks in the pictures! The seller went out of her way to make sure I had this on the date I'd requested. Totally impressed all around!!!

I ordered this as a gift for the new pastor of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha parish. It was beautiful, and he loved it.

Absolutely beautiful. I hung it on the wall behind me so Padre Pio can look over my shoulder while I work.

This is wonderful, the frame compliments the picture very well. I know it is going to go very well at our church fund raiser silent auction. Quick shipping, packaged very well. ....I would recommend this seller for sure! She is excellent! ..... Thank you!
Welcome to Writing with Fire: Woodburning Art by Mary McMahon
Hello! My name is Mary and I'm the owner of "Writing With Fire." I specialize in making handmade Catholic wood-burning artwork. My interest in woodburning was first "sparked" when I was 12 but I began really working as a woodburning artist (or pyrographer) in 2006. Pyrography (which is Greek for "Fire Writing") is the art of producing designs on wood, leather, or other materials by using heated tools or a fine flame. (I use a heated tool on wood... the idea of an open flame is interesting, but I want to keep my eyebrows.)
Most of my work is religious in theme but some are just fun. Whatever the subject, a lot of prayer and care goes into my work. This medium is very special to me. Wood plays such an important role in Christianity. Think about the Tree in the Garden of Eden, Noah's Ark, and of course, The Cross! St. Joseph was also a carpenter and probably taught his craft to Jesus! It seems very fitting to show my love for Our Lord and His Church by burning these images onto wood. That is why I think my wood-burning artwork would make a wonderful addition to the spiritual atmosphere of your home or to give as a meaningful gift.
