What Price Liberty?

These images, of St Francis in the lane adjacent to Holy Rosary Cathedral, were made a couple of years apart: the first, ca 2012; the second, 2014. In 2012,  Francis was caged within a wire enclosure. I found him liberated from the wire when I returned to take the 2014 photo. I cannot be sure of it, but it looks as though his liberty came at a price – several of the fingers were broken off in 2014 (I don’t recall that being the case in 2012, but I cannot prove it; I didn’t include his hands in the earlier image).
