St. Nicholas:

Patron saint of bankers and thieves but mostly associated with charitable giving and Christmas. His feast day in most of Europe is 6th December but he is celebrated in over 40 countries from Mexico to Iceland and Lithuania to Turkey. There are thousands of churches named after him including over 300 in Belgium and 400 in England.
So, it was difficult to find out which St. Nicholas Church this is:

My only clue here is the name of the artist, Brian Higbee, who lives in Devon and has his own website:http://www.brianhigbee.co.uk/
This is a limited edition etching, hand coloured with watercolour and numbered 138/250. It measures, in the frame, just 13cm x 18cm.
