Beautiful statue of the "Lily of the Mohawks". Measures 8 inches in tall.
Solid resin cold cast bronze, lightly finished with hand painted color highlights before firing.
Cold-Cast Bronze is a modern method of casting producing finely detailed sculptures in which the casting material is a resin mixed with powdered bronze. The finished sculpture has a surface which looks very similar to a traditionally cast bronze that runs a little lighter in color.
Like any bronze sculpture - it is durable enough for use anywhere - indoors or outdoors.

Kateri Tekawitha was canonized in 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI. She is the patroness of the environment, ecology, nature and Native Americans.
