The Holy Family
Pleasant Valley, California, 2010
About this project
This relief was made in response to a request for an image of the Holy Family. Joseph is seen as the "upright man" from Matthew's gospel, carrying the Christ child on his back, while Mary keeps a watchful eye for what is ahead.
This work was commissioned by St. John's Hospital chapel
""The child grew and became strong , filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.""
— Luke 2:40
