The Christmas Story, sculpted by Susan Lordi, reveals the humanity of Mary and Joseph. Their serene expression and beautifully protective gestures portray overwhelming emotions of love for Jesus, their newborn child. 
When placed on the base of the Sanctuary, the figures relate to each other, but they do not need to touch. Mary is turned in toward Joseph, sheltered by his right arm. Joseph's staff and cloak form a protective shield around his new family. Joseph's left hand should be positioned just above the head of the baby Jesus, shadowing the curve of Mary's wrist. This is a historically symbolic gesture of blessing and protection.

Item Details:

G1090A - The Holy Family is the heart of Christmas. Portrayed here in the distinctive Willow Tree® style, two simple but elegant resin figures rest on a sturdy wooden sanctuary platform, with a triple arched gothic-style backdrop. Mary holds the infant Jesus; Joseph (nearly 15" tall) stands protectively behind. Rich colors and delicate shadings; suitable for home or church display. Greenery not included.  Animals not included.  Largest Figure is 14 1/2" High. Gift Boxed.

G1090B - The design of the Sanctuary is based on historical architecture. Its gothic arches symbolize protective havens in which people throughout the ages have gathered to seek inspiration and hope. The two sides and center panel form a triptych—a work of art in three pieces, traditionally made as an altarpiece hinged together. The pieces are constructed of wood, hand-painted and sanded for a distinctively rich finish. Rusted nail holes provide a decorative linear element, but more importantly, are a metaphor foretelling the crucifixion. Insert includes assembly instructions for sanctuary platform. Sanctuary is 24" High by 20" Wide. Gift Boxed
