Muñequitos Monasticos: Order of Friars Minor

The Franciscans, one of if not the most recognizable of all the male religious orders. When the idea of monks and friars comes to mind it's probably the brown habit of the Franciscans that comes to mind. Started by St. Francis of Assisi in 1209, spread from Italy to the world. There are many different Franciscan observances and communities, this caricature is based on the actual Ordo Fratum Minorum, as opposed to Conventual or Capuchin Franciscans. (those cartoons will come later)
