St. Alphonsus Ligouri

Title: St. Alphonsus Ligouri
From: Private Collection
Material: plaster horse hair
Date: early 20th century
Manufacturer: Daprato
Notes: The right hand of the statue was missing and had to be made fabricated from a mold made from a model and built so that it could hold the cross (which is original) and still look like it belonged with the figure. The staff of the crozier was missing and had to be replaced.

  1. I would like to find out how to replace the staff/crozier for a St. Alphonsus statue that is on display at Holy Name School in Omaha NE. Please advise if possible. Thanks. Peace, Colleen
