This is a detail of a life-size,wood carved sculpture of the Holy Family our Church Goods Store had been commissioned to create by Fr. Paul Sirba when he was pastor of Maternity of Mary in St. Paul Minnesota. The statue is in place in their new chapel, which is still under construction.
The image was carved and polychromed in Italy by Moroder Studios.
The photo does not do the statue justice, it must be experienced.
What a Christmas gift for the parish, huh?
