Abstract

The painting of St. Anthony of Padua was made by Antoni Przesłański in 1942. It was given to the church in Raciechowice as a votive offering for the "graces received". In iconography, the saint is presented in a Franciscan habit and a tonsure on his head. He often holds or adores the Child, because, according to legend, Jesus appeared to the saint. His attribute is also a lily.
