St. Anthony of Padua

Church of the Franciscans, San Candido / Innichen, South Tyrol, Italy

The Christ Child steps onto St. Anthony's left palm, ready for his embrace. The German phrase Eilet zu Antonius on the banderole literally means "hasten to Anthony."

As usual, Anthony wears a brown Franciscan habit with a rope belt with three knots in the lower segments.
