Flight into Egypt Hand-Carved Olive Wood
W 5" x H 10.2"
This contemporary artifact of Joseph and Mary's flight into Egypt is hand-carved from Holy Land olive wood in the abstract style. It tells the story of baby Jesus carried by Mary on a little donkey led by Joseph as they flee Nazareth.
Herod formed the Massacre of the Innocents to find baby Jesus and kill him. An angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and warned him to take his family to Egypt. This story told in Matthew is depicted in the abstract style popular among young Christians. The color and grain of the wood make each piece an original.
