Olive Wood Statue of the Holy Family
Size: 5¾, in X 3¾, in X 2½, in
A distinct gift from the Holy Land: Joseph and Mary with Jesus. This statue is hand made in
the Holy city of Bethlehem. Mary is motherly holding Jesus, while Joseph has his arm around Mary.
A truly loving scene. This statue is made from one solid piece of Olive Wood symbolic of the
one-ness of the Holy Family. The statue is lovingly hand carved out of Olive Wood that is native
to the Holy Land. Olive Wood has a rich beautiful natural dark grain that contrasts against the
lighter color of the wood. The figures are free standing, allowing you to arrange them however is
appropriate in your home.
Each statue is unique, distinct, and a work of art unto itself. The figures are not molded.
Instead the entire statue is hand carved by a Christian Family in the Holy City of Bethlehem.
No two are the same.
All the wood used is Olive Wood that is locally grown in orchards between the Holy Cities of
Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Olive Trees do not grow from seeds: they are grafted, like vines. Some of
Olive trees are hundreds of years old. The families of artisans that have been producing these
carvings have been doing so for hundreds of years.
Most people cannot travel to the Holy Land. Let us bring the Holy Land to you. Grace your home
with this distinctive statue that embodies the spirit of family and love.
