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.
This bas-relief nativity is shaped as a Christmas tree. All figures are carved into the wood and then hand-painted using bright primary colors. The paint is lacquered to protect it.
