Joan of Arc is known for her role in the war between France and England. At the age of 14, Joan heard voices of saints urging her to lead France to victory. She led the troops in the capture of English forces, but burned at the stake by enemy forces. She is the patron saint of prisoners, rape victims, service women, virgins and France. The lovely Jeweled Cross statue of St. Joan of Arc beautifully depicts the saint wearing her suit of armor. Small St. Joan of Arc statues are ideal for desk top use.
