About

This 18th century statue of St. Roch was reclaimed from a private chapel near Arles, France. This location is on the route of the famous pilgrimage "Saint-Jacques de Compostelle." The original paint remains with wood showing through in areas.

Interestingly enough, the back of the statue is hollow and could have been used for storage or for a hiding place. St. Roch is the patron saint of dogs.
