Javier Ramírez takes a Byzantine image of Christ on the cross and gives a modern interpretation to the classic crucifix. Lovingly sculpting cedar wood, he depicts Jesus in an elegant and compassionate portrait. Gleaming bronze leaf enhances the lovely piece, which is an expression of the artisan's own deep faith.

Story Behind the Art:

We all strive to perpetuate the family's carving tradition, a legacy we have inherited from our ancestors. My name is Javier Claudio Ramirez Montalvo, and I was born on 2 December, 1974. I am a relative of the Montalvo Family, who are Novica featured artists. We all strive to perpetuate the family's carving tradition, a legacy we have inherited from our ancestors. In 2003 I decided to go my own way as I wanted to work on my original designs. I have always enjoyed carving! I love the look of wood, its color and natural appearance. My brother taught me how to find the detail in every little corner. He has inspired me to continue improving my work. I studied at the Don Bosco Art School for five years, and when I graduated they offered me a teaching position. I worked there for four years, until I decided to return to carving.I joined my family when they were commissioned to work on a screen for the Church of the Assumption, in my village. It meant a lot to each one of us. It was a great challenge and it is a fond memory that we now share. I describe my work as figurative. My ambition to become a great artist is what motivates me, and I would like my work to be remembered. I work with Inca themes as well as religious, which we sometimes forget. The greatest challenge I have faced is to survive in this art form, and explore other venues such as sculpting or painting. I hope Novica clients will like my work, which I have made dedication and care for you.
