Saint Francis (1182–1226) wears the brown habit of the religious order he founded in the early thirteenth century. The triple-knotted girdle hanging from his waist symbolises the poverty, obedience and chastity demanded of his followers. The saint displays his stigmata, the name for the marks of the wounds that correspond to those Christ suffered on the cross. They miraculously appeared on Francis's palms, feet and chest.
