Description

Salvaged from a thrift store, St. Joseph was an ugly yellow and white with the deadest looking eyes. Moreover his head had fallen off at some point and the previous owner had hot glued it back on leaving the glue obvious. (Yes, the before photos are from when I did an IG story on the selfie camera side so they are flipped. I forgot to take before photos whoops.)

Meticulously repainted by hand, St. Joseph went through multiple stages – when researching traditional colors for Joseph I found he wears a combo of green, orange, and purple, so originally I went with green and orange. But that looked too bold for the simple lines of this statue so I settled on a nod to the original coloring with white and orange. White, like the lilies cradled in Joseph’s arm, symbolizes his purity, and as undyed linen (or cotton or whatever) white is closer to what he might have worn on the daily, while the orange, as an earth color, is a nod toward his work as a carpenter.

Both have been elevated by his status as foster father of Jesus and have gold detailing along the edges.

Jesus’ clothing has a slight pink tint, a reminder of His future Passion.

Finished with multiple layers of dry brush detailing, every aspect has been given a three dimensionality that the original statue lacked.

Varnished three times with a matte varnish, this statue is easy to clean with soap and water and a soft cloth, without fear of ruining the paint and will withstand general handling and bumps without cracking off.

This statue is bisque (similar to porcelain) which means if you drop it it will break into a million pieces. Should this happen, gather every tiny piece you can find and send me an email and I’ll let you know the cost of a repair or if it’s a small break, guide you to fixing it yourself!

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
