Size: 9 1/2" (24.1cm)
[born in 601 in Wales]. He founded a monastery at Mynew (Miniva) and is known as the first bishop of the place called St. David. The monks followed an exceedingly austere life and the monastery became a nursery of saints. He founded a dozen monasteries and many miracles are attributed to him. He is the principle patron of Wales. He is shown as a bishop with a dove near him. He often stands on a small hill. The leek and daffodil are also associated with him, the latter perhaps because of the similarity of its name to his in Welsh (Dafydd). He is the Patron of poets and of Wales. His feast is March 1.
