Tau easel

Olivewood easel from Assisi

Easel with tau symbol

This is my easel I bought in Assisi, made of olive wood with a beautiful grain. Note the tau (T-shape) in the middle — the “Tau Cross,” named after the Greek letter, was adopted by St. Francis as a personal symbol. So when I paint, Francis is helping me out.

(You can find out more at the Wikipedia article for Tau Cross.)
