A beautiful depiction of Joseph traveling with Mary and their unborn baby in search of a place to stay, this statue is a perfect addition to your family's home this year. The statue commemorates the La Posada tradition, in which Mary and Joseph travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of shelter for Mary to give birth to Jesus. The La Posada statue honors that by depicting Joseph leading Mary, who is riding on a donkey. La Posada is often acted by children who go from home to home carrying the statue while acting the scenes of Mary and Joseph being turned away from inns. Your La Posada statue is part of the Joseph-Studio Renaissance Collection. Rest assured, with a piece from this studio, every inch of this statue is crafted from a durable resin and stone mix with deep colors which all lend to a powerful image of a tired Joseph and Mary as they face their long and frustrating search for an inn. Measuring 10 inches high, your La Posada statue is gift boxed so that you can share this gift with others this Christmas season.
