The statues inside the Saint Anthony of Padua club on Endicott street were recently painted by North End artist, Michael Dean. These mini-paintings include San Antonio Di Padova Da Montefalcione, Santa Lucia, Santa Maria and even a painting of the old, unused San Antonio statue they have in the upstairs store room, among the San Pellegrino cases (a favorite!). The mini-paintings are 4″ x 4″, showing one Saint, except for one “big” painting showing three saints all at once in a row, and it’s all of 5″X7″! One of the Saints (the short doll-like one, next to the American flag) is not labeled. Let us know in the comments if you know the name of that Saint.
