St. Giles & the Hind

The holy hermit, Giles, holds his frightened hind, which has fled a company of royal hunters. The saint has taken in his hand the arrow meant for the deer. Saint Giles was a seventh-century Athenian, known as a miracle worker, who fled fame to be a hermit in Europe along the Rhone River. The hermit lived off vegetation he gathered in the forest as well as by the milk of a hind.
