Hand Carved Wooden Sculpture of Saint Joseph with Baby Jesus

About

This is a striking Primitive hand carved statue of Saint Joseph. The Saint stands with head slightly bowed and with a reverent expression. He is clothed in a long blue tunic bearing pressed, gold-painted floral buds, beneath a green toga, slung over one shoulder and tied round his waist. He stands on a grassy or mossy rock. In his right hand Saint Joseph holds three flowering lily stalks, lilies being symbolic of purity. The bouquet is delicately carved as a separate removable piece. It is remarkable that these flowers have survived. In his left arm Saint Joseph holds the baby Jesus, crowned and holding an orb in his left hand, his right making the iconic sign for blessing or teaching. The Christ Child, too, is separately carved and is attached in the cradle of Saint Joseph's arm. No chips or repairs.
