To carve this very large piece of Catholic statuary we have a 3 year drying process as the olive wood has to come from a large and old olive tree. The tree is not cut down, but only pruned, a process that promotes the life and health of these centuries old olive trees. With this very large and lovely Virgin Mary statue being carved by hand, the carving process is very slow but the result is very much worth the effort. This Catholic statuary masterpiece is the work of world renowned Catholic statue carver Jeries Facouseh of Manger Street in Bethlehem. His shop is just a few minutes walk from the site where the Virgin Mary gave birth to the Lord Jesus, being located on Manger Street in Bethlehem.
