Photographer's Note

On Octorber 3 was the day of Saint Francis of Assisi. The Saint is padron of the biologists and since I´m I biologist I really like him. Besides he was a Franciscan order and my great uncle was a franciscan too during his life in Italy.

The figure of Saint Francis symbolizes love of self and neighbor. In 1212, he founded the Order of Friars Minor (Franciscans), who rejected materialism and, in those days, lived in the streets. In this carving, he wears an austere brown friar’s robe and bare feet. Behind his head is the halo of sainthood with flying gilded doves, the sign of the Holy Spirit. He shares his meager meal with a bird while gazing upward, seemingly thankful.

The art is placed above 9 West 50th Street entrance of 630 Fifth Avenue at the Rockefeller Center.
