 Our Description

This exquisite statue of Saint Stanislaus of Kostka is made of wood paste with glass eyes. Meticulously hand made in Spain using the same process from when the company started in 1880. It is hand-painted with oil colours so no two statues will look exactly the same. Notice the incredible attention to detail on every part of the statue. A true work of art!

Some pictures are for different quality finishes. Please read the finish explanation guide before purchasing.

Detail will vary according to size of statue ordered. This is available in sizes from 20 - 60 inches.

Each statue is made to order and delivery time usually takes 6 to 12 weeks. Refunds are not available because each statue is custom made for you.

Price includes shipping cost.

Profile
    Born to the Polish nobility, son of Belislaus and Bogna, and raised in a pious family. Educated at Gnesen, Poland, and may have studied at Paris, France. When his parents died, he distributed his inheritence of the poor. Parish priest at Czembocz, Poland. Canon and preacher, and later vicar-general at the Cracow cathedral; noted spiritual director. Reluctant bishop of Cracow in 1072. Known for his preaching against sinful living, regardless of the sinner's class. Killed by King Boleslaus the Cruel after Stanislaus excommunicated him due to his war crimes and attempted theft of land from the Church. Murdered while celebrating Mass. Reaction against Boleslaus was so great that he fled the country, never to return; his guilt led him to become a monk. Stanislaus became a symbol of Polish patriotism and nationlism, and is sometimes considered a martyr.
