Take a look at the photos of a new custom designed 72" St. Francis Xavier solid Carrara marble statue. This marble statue was commissioned and delivered to Laureate Clinic & Hospital in Tulsa, OK (a division of the St Francis Health Care System).
The Laureate Clinic & Hospital asked Egan’s to assist in creating a new outdoor marble statue of their patron saint, St Fancis Xavier.  They submitted a picture of St. Francis  from a catalog.  After consultation with our studio in Italy, Egan’s was able to quote the price for a 72" custom, hand carved marble statue.  

The hospital’s statue donor was pleased with initial design and the price we quoted.  After the hospital placed a 10% deposit, we had our artist in Italy sculpt a clay model of what the full round sculpture of St. Francis Xavier would look like. (Clay models are used so clients can ask for alterations, which can easily be done with the clay material before carving the actual marble).

After the clay model was reviewed and approved, we sent a “rough cut” picture to the customer. After a few minor changes were made, the final design of the St. Francis Xavier marble statue was commissioned and created.
A picture of the finished marble statue was emailed to The Laureate Clinic & Hospital prior to crating in Italy and shipping.  The statue now stands at the main entrance and greats all patients and family members as they come to the hospital for assistance.
