Young Mary and Joseph look on Baby Jesus in a moving cedar relief panel by Alejandro Ramirez. His care for detail is admirable, most noticeably in the Holy Family‘s expressive faces, their hands and the folds in their robes. Joseph is portrayed holding a lantern as Mary lays the Baby on her cloak over the manger. Ramirez paints the panel with oils and gilt. Features a hook for hanging.
About the Artist: "My work is about beautiful images that come forth from the wood. I am motivated by the idea of one day becoming a great wood artist and have my work remembered forever. I try to transmit the patience and dedication one must have in order to do this kind of work. The biggest challenge I have faced is to finish school, start down the path of this great art, and allow people to come into my world, the sacrifices I had to make and the long wait before I was able to sell my first piece. I believe that whoever cultivates art lives in beauty. I craft every piece for you with my own hands, with love and attention. May God bless you!"
