Olive Flight into Egypt

Flight into Egypt

Carved out of one piece of olive wood this sculpture shows the Holy Family as they are fleeing the threat of King Herod.

The Holy Family is depicted as they are taking a moment of rest. Mary, holding the baby Jesus is seated on a donkey. Joseph, with one hand placed on the neck of the donkey stands protectively next to her. The donkey is bending down to feed on some grass.
