Many Christian saints are represented by symbols or patterns that relate to their lives
Many Christian saints are traditionally represented by symbols or iconic patterns associated with their lives, called attributes or signs, in order to identify them. The study of these forms is part of the iconography of art history. They were specifically used so that the illiterate could recognize the scene and give each saint some artistic personality. They were usually carried in the hands of saints. Attributes often vary from time to time or geography, especially between Eastern and Western Christianity. Orthodox images more often contain inscriptions of saint names, so the repertoire of attributes in the East is usually smaller than in the West. Many of the most famous saints, such as St. Peter and the Evangelists of St. John, can also be identified by distinctive facial types. Some attributes are universal, such as a martyr’s palm. Use symbols in artwork depicting saints to remind the people being shown and their stories. Just like our Saint woman with kids sculpture. It is the symbol of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton was very fond of children and her image always appeared with them.

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton’s widowhood and conversion to Catholicism
Friends of Elizabeth Ann Seton’s late husband introduced him to Catholicism. After returning to New York, the widow Seton was accepted into the Catholic Church on March 14, 1805, by The Rev. Matthew O ‘Brien of St. Peter’s, then the only Catholic church in the city. (The anti-Catholic law was repealed only a few years ago.) A year later, she received the sacrament of confirmation from Bishop John Carroll of Baltimore, the nation’s only Catholic bishop. To support herself and her children, Setton opened a young ladies’ college. This was common for widows of social standing at the time. After news of her conversion to Catholicism spread, most parents withdrew their daughter from her school. In 1807, students at a local Protestant college boarded at her home on Bowery Stuyvesant Lane, near St. Mark’s Church. When Seton was about to move to Canada, she met a visiting pastor, Louis William Valentine Dubourg, a member of the exile community of the Sulpician Fathers in France, and then president of St. Mary’s College in Baltimore. Sulpicians had taken refuge in the United States to escape religious persecution during the French reign of terror. They were establishing the first Catholic seminary in the United States, in line with the goals of their community. For several years, Dubourg had envisioned a religious school to meet the educational needs of the small Catholic community in the new country. The bronze Saint woman with kids sculpture is still highly respected today. We also have a lot of sculptures of other saints and other religious sculptures.
