Details

"In my village we are very devoted to Our Lady of Candelaria, so this sculpture is my way of honoring her," says Jose Canil Ramos with pride and devotion. The Virgin of Candelaria is celebrated on February 2nd, which is when people put away the nativity scenes and thus concludes the Christmas celebrations. In Guatemala, she is the patron saint of the cities of Chiantla, Colotenango and Jacaltenango (of the Huehuetenango region) and Cunén (of the El Quiché region). Canil carves this admirable pinewood sculpture by hand and paints her with delicate and sublime detail. Finally, he treats the sculpture to achieve an antique finish.

"Beauty, blessings, and grace!"

Jose Canil Ramos' 'Our Lady of Candelaria' combines memories of my Maryknoll missionary cousin Padre Albert Reymann who served in Guatemala 1950-80, my knowledge of Aztec, Incan, and Mayan cultures, and my friend Kathy Chappelear's grandchildren who were adopted from Guatemala. She is a blessing who now graces my home. Thank you Jose Canil Ramos!

I love ""Paxot Holy Family"" for the beauty of the painting of the figures. It is a centrepiece at Christmas.

I adore my St. Francis Statue. I have it displayed in my work office and several people have commented on it. One way to gently share faith. Thank you.
