Image of Saint Anelm

I've been searching the Web and other sources for images of Saint Anselm. Recently, I came across the website for the Pontifical Liturgical Institute in Rome, San Anselmo. There, I found this image of a statue in the College's courtyard. This image of Anselm shows him in his Benedictine habit, and crowned with the mitre and carrying a crozier, symbols of his office as Archbishop of Canterbury. He's also pictured carrying a Book of Gospels, symbolizing his missionary efforts to bring the Gospel to the people of England and France.
