Hallmark created this ornament a few years ago. I'm featuring it here today, in honor of the Feast of the Holy Family on December 30.
Two things immediately jump to mind when looking at this ornament. First of all, it is very similar to the well known sculpture "A Quiet Moment" by Timothy P. Schmalz. (www.sculpturebytps.com) Both are similar in the round circle composition, the materials used and the portrayal of the family as an inter-generational circle of love. Its really a beautiful statue, full of love and tenderness. Which brings me to the second point - the question of belonging, of being at home.
