Hand Carved Holy Family
Whittled by traditional artisans in Indonesia from locally sourced alstonia wood, this handmade sculpture of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus has been carved using traditional methods, and each one painted with unique little details. The surface has a rustic chiselled effect, as if it’s already seen many Christmas Days in the world.
These sculptures aren’t mass produced – each one will have its own character, as it’s been the sole focus of a craftsperson for the time it’s taken to make it.
