Hand Carved Wooden Figurine of Saint Charbel with Cedar Tree
L 6.3" x W 7.9" x H 10.8"
Bethlehem Handicrafts’ artisans carved this wooden statue carefully from olive trees in the Holy Land. Saint Charbel Makhlouf (or Sharbel Maklouf) was a Maronite monk and priest from Lebanon with a wide reputation for holiness. Through his intercession, God blessed many people with physical healing and spiritual graces. As shown, Saint Charbel is sitting and reading the Bible and behind him is the Cedar Tree which was mentioned at the end of (Psalm 92) as a symbol of the righteous. Part of the attraction of olive wood is the unique texture and visual appearance of the wood itself. Therefore, no two items are exactly alike and absolute duplicates of the same product is impossible.
