Ludovico Svirech
St. Francis of Paola, 1771

The plate of fish in the lower left corner refers to the legend that when cooked fish were brought to him at table, the saint restored them to life. The Order of Minims that he founded eschewed all meat, fish, and dairy products.

In the upper left St. Michael the Archangel transfers the motto charitas from a decorative shield to the breast of St. Francis's habit. Usually the saint is pictured with the motto in a sunburst on the top of his staff.

The lilies held by the angel in the lower right are a conventional sign of sexual purity.
