St. Celecia used to be THE Most Hilariously Painted Statue. Check the photos. Blotchy paint and a color scheme that still leaves tears in my eyes, someone thought neon pink, forest green, and cobalt blue were a good combo. I, of course, instantly fell in love.

Originally an angel, the statue’s wings had fallen off and gotten lost before I salvaged it from a thrift store. But with her harp, she made the perfect St. Cecelia, and until I turned her around I thought it was the Saint.

Leaving the remnants of the wings on the back as a memory of its origins, I completely revamped the color scheme. Carefully hand painted in multiple layers, Cecelia now has a wonderfully complex depth to her clothing with a light dusting of gold to bring out the beautiful carved details. With a red overdress and shawl to honor her martyrdom, a blue underdress as a symbol of Heaven, a white (under-underdress?) trim to honor her purity, and her classic harp in her hand, at a glance you can remember her story.

The pine cones? Evergreens and holly leaves are symbols of eternity as they do not change color and die each winter.

Varnished three times with a matte varnish, this statue is easy to clean with soap and water and a soft cloth, without fear of ruining the paint and will withstand general handling and bumps without cracking off.

This statue is resin which means if you drop it it will break honestly probably not break (especially with how small the statue is), but the paint might chip. Resin is a very sturdy material, but should it break, gather the pieces and send me an email and I’ll quote you the repair or help walk you through an at home repair!

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
