This one piece sculpture , painted with richly layered colors , is ideal for those with limited display space, or who wish to display a nativity year-round. The expressive getsures of Mary and Joseph reveal their humanity , and potray their overwhelming emotion of love and protection for their newborn child. May is turned in towards Joseph, sheltered by his right arm. Jospeoh's staff and cloak form a protective shield around his new family. Joseph's left hand , positioned above the head of Baby Jesus, shadows the curve of Mar's wrist. This is a historically symbolic gesture of blessing and protection. "This is a story from the past....but the overwhelming emotions of holiday a new baby, starting a anew family, and wanting to protect them forevermore are present today in every culture and every age. My hope is that the gestures of Mary and Joseph will represent these powerful feelings of love and protection.
