san severo - san francisco church (salta, argentina)

Wax sculpture of San Severo (apparently dead or dying) - San Francisco Church (Salta, Argentina)

I'm not sure exactly which San Severo this is representing, since there seems to be several saints with this name.­ This one seems to be dressed as a Roman soldier.­

If you have more information about this Saint, please email me.

This sculpture was made by Padre Luis Giorgi, 1821-1884.­
