Details

"In my village we are very devoted to Our Lady of Candlemas, so this sculpture is my way of honoring her," says Jose Canil Ramos with pride and devotion. The Virgin of Candelaria is celebrated on February 2nd, which is when people put away the nativity scenes and thus conclude the Christmas celebrations. In Guatemala, she is the patron saint of the cities of Chiantla, Colotenango and Jacaltenango (of the Huehuetenango region) and Cunén (of the El Quiché region). Canil carves this pinewood sculpture by hand and paints her with delicate and sublime detail. Finally, he treats the sculpture to achieve an antiqued finish.

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.

The angels of Hope and Gratitude are beautifully carved and painted and work best together as a serene, watchful pair.

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.
