Mary of Nazareth Statue, Brown – the busy working Mother. This is indeed a refreshing depiction of Mary, quite different from the more traditional Mary as the Mother of God (Theotokos) and Our Lady. She is someone with whom many women can relate. This statue will be a great gift for Mother’s Day, of course, but also for a wedding, wedding anniversary, and a special birthday.
Mary of Nazareth – A Focused Labor of Love, Hope and Faith
This statue of Mary of Nazareth stands 11.5 inches tall and is made of dolomite stone and resin. Cloistered nuns create, mold, and hand-finish each and every statue in their French monastery workshop. Each nun prayerfully performs a designated task necessary to complete each statue. How, where, and by whom the Mary of Nazareth Statue is made ensures that it is indeed ”culturally authentic” and a focused labor of love, hope and faith!
Mary of Nazareth – Working Mother
Mary is depicted here as a busy (and probably a little bit stressed) working mother and homemaker. Clutching a jug of water in her left hand and firmly holding Jesus’ hand with her right hand, this very busy Mary has hardly enough hours in the day to take care of household duties! Women in many areas of the world have to walk long distances every day just to fill their jugs with water. Working women in the United States juggle their professional careers and domestic duties like cooking, grocery-shopping, and home maintenance. Many women the whole world over raise and care for their children – a full-time job in and of itself which can be most rewarding but unfortunately much too often totally unpaid. Mary of Nazareth, Mary the working mother, Mary the homemaker – a woman with whom working mothers in the 1st century and the 21st century can relate!
