    This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

    Cradled in his mother's arms, the infant Jesus reaches a chubby hand to caress the Virgin's face in this tender relief sculpture. Handcrafted by Peru's Ramirez Montalvo Family, the wall sculpture features golden halos of bronze leaf.

    Product Features:
    • Colors: Brown, beige, red, metallic gold
    • Materials: Cedar wood, bronze leaf
    • Dimensions: 10.6 inches high x 7.5 inches wide x 0.8 inches deep

    Story Behind the Art:
    Taught by Salesian priests of the Mato Grosso congregation, brothers Simeon and German Ramirez Montalvo learned the secrets of woodcarving. They work principally in cedar and mahogany wood, painted with oils. 'Every piece is an opportunity to express our profound relationship with the Catholic faith,' German says. They also choose themes based on Andean culture.
