Joseph the carpenter cared for Mary and Jesus with his work. Jesus himself worked as a carpenter for many years. I emphasized this detail in my work by putting a craftsman's tool in Jesus' hands.

Saint Christopher

Sculpture with Jesus on his shoulder and with two angels seated at his feet. In his hands palm and crown, pointing to his martyrdom. The work is a faithful copy, down to the smallest detail, of an 18th-century paper-mâché work located in the church of Urbania.

Crowns are a work of art in themselves.
