The handcrafted pewter Saint Christopher statue by Jeweled Cross depicts the martyr holding a child on his shoulder and a walking stick in his hand. According to legend, Saint Christopher befriended a hermit that helped build him a home beside the river. One day, a child came to him and asked for help crossing the river. Saint Christopher put the child on his shoulders and waded into the water. However, the child became so heavy that Saint Christopher thought he would drown. It was then that the child revealed himself to be Christ.
