The beautifully polychromed church sculpture represents the popular Saint Anthony (Lisbon, 1195 – Padua, 1231) with the little Jesus on his arm. You can immediately recognize a Franciscan monk by his brown habit, brown hooded cloak and the cord with knots around his waist. The cord does not only serve a utility function to keep the habit together. Each of the three knots in the rope symbolize a monastic vow: chastity, obedience and poverty. The vow of poverty is also the reason why the Franciscans live barefoot. The depiction of the saint with the Christ child on his arm goes back to a miracle. When Anthony was meditating over a book about Christ’s cross, suddenly the child appeared above his manuscript. Although the sculpture has been cut quite rudimentary, the bend of Anthony’s knees greatly enlivens the image.
