      Description

      Demdaco Willow Tree The Christmas Story #26173 designed by Susan Lordi.

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

      The two-piece set of Mary holding baby Jesus, and Joseph is the centerpiece of The Christmas Story. The figures are nearly 15" tall, and painted with richly layered colors. The expressive gestures of Mary and Joseph reveal their humanity, and portray their overwhelming emotion of love and protection for their newborn child. 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 together: 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." --Susan Lordi.

      The Christmas Story is the largest-scale nativity created by Susan Lordi. The two-piece set of Mary and Joseph fit with Gentle Animals of the Stable on the wood base of the 24" H Sanctuary backdrop. Pierced metal Tree Sihouettes add color and texture.
