Saint Anthony Window Anthony stands on the window in the dark brown Franciscan robe with rope around his waist. He is embracing lilies, symbols of his great purity, a rosary that stands for his great piety and a book symbolizing his great learning. The Christ Child sits on the book, talking to and embracing Anthony. He apparently steps out of the ornate entrance represented by a column of a university. He thought at several famous universities. But following his great friend's example. Francis of Assisi, he loved God's creation. We see an abundance of flowers growing around him, and birds sitting on a branch behind him.
