Details

Cradling tiny Jesus in her arms, the Virgin of Mount Carmel proffers a pair of scapulars; the child offers two more. Jose Canil Ramos portrays them in a colorful wood sculpture with protective felt on the base.

This Madonna is named for Mount Carmel in the Holy Land, where a chapel was built in her honor before her assumption into heaven. In 1251 she appeared in England, offering favors and protection to those who wear her scapular. Also known as Immaculate Virgin and Star of the Sea, she inspired the Carmelite order.

As a San Franciscan I wanted to add this santo to my collection of artworks from Jose Canil Ramos (Jocara). It is even more beautiful than the featured photo: Saint Francis has a beautiful soulful face.

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.
