Flight into Egypt - FI2E-3

This statue is hand-carved from the blessed olive wood in the Holy Land.  It is a beautifully detailed representation of the flight into Egypt that Joseph and the Virgin Mary made.  They had to flee the Holy Land and go into Egypt to escape Herod. The statue stands approximately 6.5" tall.

"When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him."  Matthew 2:13
