Saint Julia of Corsica, also known as Saint Julia of Carthage, was a virgin martyr who was killed by Roman soldiers. According to legend, St. Julia was captured from her city and sold as a slave to a man named Eusebius. She was killed by the Roman government after refusing to denounce her religion. The Saint Julia statue features an image of a female in traditional robes and holding a large leaf. It is made of fine pewter and is the perfect size for display on a desk.
