    Willow Tree - Holy Family Mary, Joseph & Jesus - The Christmas Story

    Size: The figures are approx. 38cm

    Her name is Mary. His name is Joseph. The baby, Jesus

    The Christmas Story is the largest-scale nativity created by Susan Lordi.  and are best displayed in the Sanctuary.

    The expressive gestures of Mary and Joseph reveal their humanity, and portray their overwhelming emotion of love and protection for their newborn child. The two-piece set of Mary holding baby Jesus, and Joseph is the centre piece of The Christmas Story.  The elegant movement of Mary’s and Joseph’s garments, and their protective gestures bring this composition to the highest levels of sculptural art.

    The pieces relate to each other when placed on the base of the Sanctuary. Mary is turned in toward Joseph, sheltered by his right arm. Joseph’s staff and cloak form a protective shield around his new family. Joseph’s left hand, positioned above the head of baby Jesus, shadows the curve of Mary’s wrist. This is a historically symbolic gesture of blessing and protection.

    “The Christmas Story is a story from the past… but the overwhelming emotions of holding a new baby, starting a new family, and wanting to protect them forevermore are present today in every culture and every age. My hope is that the gestures of Mary and Joseph will represent these powerful feelings of love and protection.”
