Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus Carved in Olive Wood
W 2.6" x H 8.4"
The gentleness and softness of Mary’s gaze on her baby could only have been captured by a skilled craftsman like our Jerusalem-based master carvers. This one of a kind piece shows the deep knowledge our artists have of how to work with olive wood to bring out it’s best features, like using the natural grain of the wood to create the depth of Mary’s robes.
In this piece, Mary’s love and Jesus’s humanity shine through in the amber colored wood. This is surely a perfect Mother’s Day gift, but also would be welcomed by any mother all year long.
