Life is one of nine wood engravings in the Suite for St. Francis series.
A Suite for St. Francis was inspired by a prayer attributed to St. Francis, the 12th century Catholic Friar.
St. Francis had a deep love for animals and the natural environment through which he sought a closer relationship to his creator. He encouraged us to seek love, to be generous, joyful, to forgive others, to bring light where there is darkness and so find peace.
