Seeming to glow with holy energy, the mother of Jesus is captured in this impressive statuette from Guatemala. Artisan duo Juan and Carolina create the statuette, carved of pinewood and hand-painted with floral motifs in rustic tones. Each tendril of light that surrounds her is made of a separate piece of wood, and is removable. Say the artisans, "We love being able to create all of these pieces, because with them we can portray saints that are worthy of the devotion of many Guatemalans who have witnessed their miracles through fervent orations."
Juan and Carolina create hand-painted wood sculptures. Their techniques and designs have been handed down from generation to generation. "We work from the heart. Each wood carving becomes a part of our family legacy. We love creating these traditional and rustic sculptures filled with history."
