You’ve published a couple of photos lately by a Northern California artist named Benny Bufano. The St. Francis in this morning’s entry is his and is indeed at the Mondavi Winery. His works are all over the Bay Area and are characterized by beautifully rounded figures of animals as well as numerous versions of St. Francis and are often embellished with mosaics. He’s one of our local treasures and was quite a man — totally committed to peace.

NT, I had no idea this was by Benny Bufano although looking at it again I should have guessed. I’m so glad you were able to give us more info, thanks again! 🙂
