St. Joseph Guardian of Sons - Standard Gold Framed Art 12x16
This image of St. Joseph Guardian of Sons is full of symbolism and meaning and is a reproduction of a 19th-century painting by Melchior Paul von Deshwanden, a Swiss artist. Featuring the fatherhood of St. Joseph and Christ as the one who "became man", this beautiful image reveals a tender and contemplative St. Joseph with the Christ child resting on his lap. Petting a lamb, the Child Jesus is foreshadowing his sacrifice as the "Lamb of God," and St. John the Baptist, who is pictured as a young boy holding a cross with the "Agnus Dei" proclamation, kneels devotedly next to Christ and kisses his foot. The traditional rod of lilies points to the purity of St. Joseph the axe next to him points to the hard work and labor he accomplished for his family throughout his life.
Hanging in an ornate yet elegant gold frame, this unique painting of St. Joseph Guardian of Sons will make a wonderful focal point in any room in your home.
