Hand Hewn Ornaments from Saint Mary of the Woods - Celebrating Vigo County's 200th Anniversary

Hand Hewn Ornaments from Saint Mary of the Woods - Celebrating Vigo County's 200th Anniversary
$15.00

According to historical records, Vigo County was broken off from Sullivan county by an act of the General Assembly of Indiana in 1818. Its name is derived from Colonel Francis Vigo, who was Italian but was a citizen of Spain due to having a home in St. Louis. He is credited with giving assistance to George Rogers Clark in financing Clark's exploration as well as through American Revolutionary War efforts.  

Honor the 200th Anniversary of Vigo County through this hand-hewn wooden ornament from Keith Ruble. Each one is slightly different and features the grain and rings of the train from which it was made. Each one also has burned-on information on the reverse side to show the type of tree, and where it was from.

Saint Mother Theodore Guerin loved to go out into the woods and collect simple blossoms which could be used in the pharmacy she ran. This required much preparation and dicing of the herbs so as to help release their healing powers. She grew to love her adopted home of Indiana in every way. 

 

After a visit to France to support their work here in Indiana, she exclaimed as she approached her home, "I saw once more...my Indiana."

Today you too can share in that love of the Hoosier state with this commemorative kitchen plaque, made into the shape of the State of Indiana, with a thick and durable maple wood. With Saint Mother Theodore Guerin's image laser etched and a special quote, made just for this plaque, it is sure to add a special place in your home and kitchen.

On our campus, there are many trees some of which are quite old. These wooden slabs are from a fallen oak tree which is rumored to potentially have been sold that perhaps it was a young sapling when Saint Mother Theodore walked through these woods. 

 

 

Each slab features a quote which reads:

Act justly

love mercy

walk humbly

 

 

 

Dimensions: 2 " to 3" diameter; each slab is a differing shape and size based on the way the wood grew
