The famous martyr St. Thomas Becket, minimally styled and ready to be treasured. Both as a prayer companion and daily friend, this piece is a wonderful way to remind us about strength of character and how important it is to stand up for our faith and values especially when it is hard.
Born in London around the year 1120, Thomas Becket rose to the position of Archbishop of Canterbury under King Henry II. Major disputes with the King ended in his assassination by knights on the steps of his Cathedral.
His feast day is celebrated on December 29.
Sewn in a linen/cotton blend, with felt and hand stitched detailing in face. His face and bishop’s miter are made with %100 merino wool felt – resists pilling and will stay soft! She is made to last and is sure to become a treasured part of any child’s collection. Would make a great First Communion, Baptism, or Patron Saint feast day gift.
Roughly 9 inches tall, 4.5 inches wide.
