Saint Lucy is the patron saint of vision. The beautiful statue of St. Lucy gazing on a plate represents the story of Lucy, whose eyes were removed as a form of tortured for the crime of being Christian. Lucy was given over to her captors by her pagan boyfriend after she rejected his advances. Saint Lucy is known for her miraculous powers of healing, particularly when it comes to eyesight problems. The statue is hand painted using vibrant colors, giving it a beautiful finish despite its somewhat gruesome design.
