Saint Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals and lover of all creation, most known for his prayer at Assisi. (Read more below.) The background of the dog tag has a digitized reprint of Zurbara’s painting of St. Francis. The foreground of the tag has the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi (abridged to fit on tag). This is really unique Catholic religious jewelry for the young or young at heart and for anyone who is spiritual.
The painting is by Francisco de Zurbarán (baptized November 7, 1598; died August 27, 1664) who was a Spanish painter. He is known primarily for his religious paintings depicting monks, nuns, and martyrs, and for his still-lifes. Zurbarán gained the nickname Spanish Caravaggio, owing to the forceful, realistic use of chiaroscuro in which he excelled. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francisco_de_Zurbarán
