Holy Family Resting on their Way to Egypt

Following the advise of an angel and fearing King Herod would kill Jesus, Joseph took his family to safety in Egypt.  This version of the flight shows the Holy Family as they pause for a moment. Joseph is wearily leaning on his staff. Mary holds the baby Jesus on her lap. Jesus is depicted holding his hands un prayer.  Jose Canil Ramos honors the Holy Family with these two pinewood sculptures, carved and painted by hand.
