Details

Pausing for a moment on their hurried flight to Egypt, Mary comforts the Christ child as a weary Joseph leans on his staff. In an effort to wipe out all competition to his throne, Herod ordered the death of every child in Bethlehem under the age of two. To save the life of their baby, the Holy Family sought refuge in a foreign land. Jose Canil Ramos honors the Holy Family with these two pinewood sculptures, carved and painted by hand.

"Jose Canil Ramos"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Jose Canil Ramos is one of the most gifted artists at Novica. His carved santos are even more beautiful than the featured photographs. I have purchased over two dozen of his beautiful pieces for my collection as well as for greatly appreciated gifts for family and friends. The demand for his artworks is high so you may have to wait for the works to arrive, but be patient!

I bought this sculpture for my wifes birthday, and she loves it! Jose Canil Ramos is an extremely talented artist. This piece is even more magnificent in person. We all love this sculpture, very meticulously created and beautifully rendered. This is our second piece from this artist, and we are awed by his talent.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Jose suffers from a rare facial nerve paralysis and is currently treating the condition with physical therapy.

Jose is a very talented wood carver. He first learned when he was just ten years old from his father. This art has been passed down for generations and Jose plans to continue the tradition and teach his son how to carve.

Jose Canil Ramos has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $250 and the most recent for $2100. Proceeds were used to invest in wood, saws, paints, and sandpaper for production.

Jose's work helps generate employment opportunities for those in his community. With the sales from NOVICA, he can employ other artisans and help change the lives of his workers.

Jose hires several people in his community which provides them with a stable income for supporting their families.
