As described in the New Testament, Mary and Joseph traveled 90 miles from Nazareth to Bethlehem to be counted in a census. Display this Road to Bethlehem Statue to rejoice in the upcoming birth of Jesus and to celebrate your faith. Made from cold cast bronze, this bronze pilgrimage statue features Joseph leading a donkey that carries a pregnant Mary. Joseph and Mary are wearing the traditional robes and traveling clothes of the time period, and Joseph is carrying a staff in his right hand. This Advent season statue has been hand-painted to bring out every detail. During Advent, the weeks leading up to Christmas, some churches celebrate the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem by reenacting parts of it in their community with processions, songs, prayers, and sharing a feast. In Mexico this tradition is known as Las Posadas, which means The Lodgings. Make this Road to Bethlehem Statue part of your Christmas season or year-round decor.
