Saint Kateri Tekawitha statue
This is Saint Kateri Tekawitha statue that I photographed and made as a digital sketch.
I’ve seen this wooden sculpture displayed inside the Mission San Xavier del Bac, Arizona. The mission is a beautiful historic Spanish Catholic religious complex. Padre Eusebio Kino established it in 1692 in the Tohono O’odham San Xavier Indian Reservation. History says that born in 1656, Kateri Tekawitha was a truly saintly woman. Consequently, she was the first Native American recognized as a saint by the Catholic religion.
We visited the mission and admired the statues and carvings. The Spanish architectural elements on the white ivory outside walls were begging to be photographed. Therefore, here are two pictures of the mission’s facade. I also made them as digital sketches, color and black & white:
