As a Catholic, she was persecuted so terribly that she fled for her life to Canada near Montreal, where she lived a life of great holiness to her death in 1680 at the age of 24. Her feast day is July 14. She is patron saint of the environment and ecology. You could call her the "green"" saint!
Sue painted the original of this icon in acrylics. The halo symbolizes her name, Lily of the Mohawks. The picture is a bit wintry, with little green dots for the seeds of new life in Christ that Kateri helped plant in North America. Her face was based on a photo of an Algonquin lady and her clothing from other photos of Mohawk and Algonquin women. She is often shown with the Rosary and a cross made from sticks.
IMPORTANT: Each of the 3 sizes indicates outside dimensions. There is a border of white left around the image, approximately 1 1/2" to 2" all around.
