Don't worry, the Baby Jesus isn't missing from his manger, he's resting peacefully in Mary's arms! This traditional-style, single-piece Holy Family nativity statue is a great religious figurine to feature on a desk, shelf, or entryway table this holiday season. It beautifully pictures the scene from that first Christmas night. The Holy Family Nativity in Grotto features the Baby Jesus resting in his mother's arms while St. Joseph stands watching over Mother and Child. A little lamb curls up next to the manger, reminiscent of Jesus as the promised Lamb of God. Two little birds rest nearby, reminscent of the two turtledoves that Mary and Joseph sacrificed at Jesus' Presentation in the Jewish temple in fulfillment of the Old Testament Law. This Holy Family Nativity in Grotto statue was hand-painted by an Italian artisan family in the Tuscan hills outside of Lucca, Italy, and is a great way to display your devotion to the Holy Family. The feast day of the Holy Family falls on the Sunday after Christmas.
