Holy Family Statues are Center of Nativity

A holy family statue is a wonderful reminder of who we strive to be like and it is a statue that graces many homes.  Sometimes the statue has Joseph and Mary standing with Mary holding the Christ child, sometimes they are shown kneeling with Joseph holding a shepherd’s hook.  There are also some very stylized or modernized versions with faceless figures, or figures that arch together with the Christ child cradled together.  You can also find the statue with the figurines as separate pieces, much as you will find in many nativity sets.

If you are looking for a holy family statue, the first thing you will need to decide is how big you want your statue to be.  They are many lovely garden statues available in anything from a small version of about two feet, to a life size version.  These statues are often made of stone, or resin and stone mixes, as well as concrete and marble.  They are usually available through garden centres and can also be made to order, although this can be very pricy.

If you are looking for a smaller holy family statue to display inside your house, the internet has some wonderful options available, as it is indeed a global marketplace.  You can find suppliers that source genuine Italian statues, many of which are handcrafted, hand painted and exquisite, made out of various materials such as porcelain or china, as well as plaster and even metals such as bronze, granite and fibreglass.  There are also some very fine statues handcrafted out of wood and there are many artistic renderings as well.

You will also need to decide whether you want a holy family statue that is realistically painted with face and cloth details or whether you would like something that is like the faceless statues that leave more to the imagination.  The interesting thing about the faceless statues is that they represent the global family and can appeal to all generations.  There are also some beautiful statues available that are replicas of larger statues that exist in Europe, particularly in Italy.  You can even find some “certified” replicas if you like.

Ordering your holy family statue through an online merchant can be a very pleasant experience as you can order when and where you please, as long as you have an internet connection.  Most online suppliers have secure check out facilities these days, and can deliver anywhere in the world.  This can be very convenient if you are ordering gifts for friends either domestically or overseas.  Delivery is also quite fast and is often done by courier or special post.  One of the great things about ordering your statue online is that it is quite easy to find unique and special pieces, crafted by artists and craftspeople around the world.  These statues also make wonderful gifts, especially at Christmas time and they are always well received and cherished, even by those who are not religious.  As a reminder of who we aspire to be, a statue of the holy family always has a place in every home, even if it is only at Christmas, a time that most people in the world share in one way or another.
