ST. JOSEPH GUARDIAN OF SONS - FRAMED PRINT
Originally painted by 19th-century Swiss artist, Melchior Paul von Deschwanden, this beautiful picture depicts the love of St. Joseph and his role as guardian and foster father of Christ, the God-man. Jesus is seated on St. Joseph's lap as if upon a throne with a stalk of lilys as his scepter while young John the Baptist, holding a cross with his "Agnus Dei" proclamation, kneels to pay homage to Jesus, the "Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world". This unique fine art print is framed under glass in a decorative gold wood frame, with a sawtooth hook, ready to hang. Measures 18 1/2" x 14 1/4" overall.
