St. Nicholas, Switzerland

Saint Nicholas, Switzerland

Saint Nicholas figurine, collected by my dad in Lausanne, Switzerland, 1960

Part of my travel collection of small figurines I call “Little Gods”.

“Many of the churches devoted to the saint were those established at market squares by Russian merchants, sea-farers and those who traveled by land, venerating the wonderworker Nicholas as a protector of all those journeying on dry land and sea.” (Quote source)
