Long Description:
The sandstone Baroque statue of St. Francis of Assisi is located in a small park between the church and the vicarage in Pyšely. The dilapidated statue depicts the Patron saint worn in typical cowl with hood on his head and the Book at his feet. The statue is ascribed to Prague' sculptor Jan Bedrich Kohl-Severa (1681 – 1736).

Saint Francis of Assisi (born Giovanni Francesco Bernardone) (1181 or 1182 – 3 October 1226) was a Roman Catholic friar and the founder of the Order of Friars Minor, more commonly known as the Franciscans.

He is known as the patron saint of animals, birds, the environment, and Italy, and it is customary for Catholic churches to hold ceremonies honoring animals around his feast day of October 4.
