Details

The archangel Raphael, companion of Tobias in the Bible, guided the young man in his journey to recover a loan his father made to a relative. During their travels, a large fish attacked Tobias as he crossed the river. Raphael killed the fish and removed the bladder, which Tobias later used to cure his father's blindness. Inspired by the saint and his miracles, Jose Canil Ramos carves this beautiful polychrome sculpture. "I believe the archangel Raphael helps everyone who is suffering emotionally or physically," the artisan affirms.

"This is the beft gift I got for my mom so far!"

We got thid image cause we just came from a trip to Guatemala and El Salvador, as my Grandmother was half Salvadoran and half Guatemalan and I felt in Love with Antigua. I am now renovating the house with art and colors inspired on Antigua and getting this Amazing sculpture for mom was the best idea! We love it because my maternal grandfather and uncle who are not with us were named after The Archangel Raphael, so from now on we will treasure this piece for all the coming generations. Thank you and keep up the good work of beautiful art pieces!

"This is s family heirloom now!"

Beautiful rendition of archangel Raphael. We wanted extra protection this year with do many family members having illness. We were able to generate strength and peace having this special image carved by the talented hand of Jose Ramos. The colors are very vibrant and the gold tones make this image pop out. So many family and friends now ask us to place special prayers under this sculpture and we think it is a blessing to have in our home.

"Un Belén precioso!!!"

Es un Belén precioso y muy original!! Tal cual en las fotos o quizás, mejor. El detalle de los brazos articulados es genial. Sus grandes dimensiones me encantan. El hecho de que sean una gallina y un tucán los animales que acompañan el misterio es muy original. Los detalles de la pintura preciosos. Estoy muy contento. Uno más para mi colección. Llegó pronto y en perfectas condiciones. Muy bien empaquetado. Gracias!!
