Reverent Baptism in Hand Carved Olive Wood Pedestal Carving
W 7.5" x H 9"
The years of skill and care of the individual artisan that carved this scene in Olive Wood are immediately noticeable in the intricate details of the robes, the contrasting grains in the olive wood stands and pedestal and the highlighting of the scene. But only a master carver with a deep faith could bring forth the expressions of trust and focus on the faces of John the Baptist and Jesus and show, through the flying dove placed above Jesus’s head, the moment wherein God claimed him as his son. This piece shows Jesus on a firm foundation of bricks, showing our own firm foundation in trust in God. This pedestal carving brings faith into any home, but can be a perfect graduation gift for anyone beginning a new ministry as reminds us of Jesus’s faith as he began his journey.
