Apollo 16 Flown St. Christopher statue and Jerusalem Tile

22 Dec

Flown St. Christopher statue carried to the lunar surface by Duke on board the Apollo 16 Lunar Module Orion. Statue measures approximately one-inch high and was stored in Duke’s PPK inside the lunar module. Statue is accompanied by an eye-catching 10 x 14 hand-calligraphed and -illuminated prayer for the Apollo 16 astronauts, said by the children of The Holy Spirit School and Father Paddy Roche, and illuminated by the Carmelite Nuns of Up Holland, England. Reverse of the prayer is signed, “This prayer was hand painted by the students and staff of Holy Spirit school and personally given to Charlie Duke by Father Paddy Roche. Charlie Duke.”
