St. Francis of Assisi

 St. Francis of Assisi in Charles City, Iowa.  Sometimes we run into surprises.  The top part of the carving was solid, but we ran into wire as the feet were being carved.  At one time, this young tree served as a corner post for a fence and the base became hollow.  The owner cemented the hole and made it into a place to sit and meditate at St. Francis' feet.
