#863 Sleeping Holy Family

Acquired 2020

This molded single piece depicts the traditional Holy Family with a modern twist as a loving, cuddling, close family unit. To see Mary and Joseph snuggled close to one another cradling their Holy Child brings a warmth to the birth of Christ. I’m sure in their real life here on earth this was a common scene in their family although it is not usually depicted in art forms. Therefore, I wanted to add the piece to my collection. I found the piece online from Christian Books, Inc. on their “after Christmas” sale. Purchased January 2020, $44.
