The True Cross with SS. Francis and Helena

Franciscan Museum, Dubrovnik, Croatia

St. Francis wears the habit of his order; his left hand bears the stigma. Saint Helena wears a small diadem; the angel at her feet proffers a full-size crown topped by a cross. The letters IHS are the last and first two letters of the Greek for "Jesus."
