Willow Tree Figurine - The Christmas Story ( Large )
The two piece set of Mary holding baby Jesus, and Joseph is the centrepiece of The Christmas Story. The figures are nearly 38cm/15” tall, and painted with richly layered colours. The expressive gestures of Mary and Joseph reveal their humanity, and portray their overwhelming emotion of love and protection for their newborn child. The elegant movement of Mary’s and Joseph’s garments, and their protective gestures bring this composition to the highest levels of sculptural art. The pieces relate to each other when placed together: Mary is turned in toward Joseph, sheltered by his right arm. Joseph’s staff and cloak form a protective shield around his new family. Joseph’s left hand, positioned above the head of baby Jesus, shadows the curve of Mary’s wrist. This is a historically symbolic gesture of blessing and protection.
