Here are some pictures of Virgin Mother Mary, she is 5’-3” and took me almost 8 months from clay to hand carving. This has been a great honor for me carving Jesus, Mary, and next Joseph. Thank you very much for looking, I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

It’s been a long haul Dennis. I’ll bet you’re happy to see the final form and you should be very pleased as well.
She’s magnificent!
