"One of the customs we have inherited from our Maya ancestors is to give thanks to Ajaw or God every morning when we wake up and before we eat. We do it by crossing our hands over our heart and bowing, and we also use this gesture to greet our elders," says Jose Canil Ramos as he explains his inspiration. "That's how I came up with the idea of crafting a kneeling angel expressing gratitude the same way we do." Canil carves the sculpture from local pinewood and paints it with vivid detail.

"Angel of Gratitude"

I was so impressed by the carving of this wonderful piece. It goes so well with the other carving of the Virgin of Guadalupe by Jose Canil Ramos. It looks 100% better in person than in the photo.

I adore my St. Francis Statue. I have it displayed in my work office and several people have commented on it. One way to gently share faith. Thank you.
