St. Eligius, Patron Saint of Those Who Work With Hammers

St. Eligius was my first piece in this series. I chose him for the checkerboard floor pattern on the saint card I was working from. Only after I was nearly finished with the piece did I discover one of his patronages is that of those who work with hammers. An omen indeed! I then added tiny figures of a man hammering in each bottom corner.
