Fiberglass statue, internally empty and very light. It is suitable to be carried during the processions. The manufacturing is entirely manual. When the two parts are linked, there is the finishing of the statue and it is perfectly smoothed, then the statue goes through the coloring section. The skilled decorators hand paint using particolar varnishes, conforming to the traditional iconography. The fiberglass is a plastic material, very resistant and humidity absorber which is used in many sectors: industry, furnitures, building of boats, airplanes, vehicles, garden swimmingpool etc.

Storia

Sain Joseph the patriarch is commemorated on the 19th of March.

He was the husband of the Virgin Mary and the putative father of Jesus. He is described with an all-ambracing adjective: righteous.

He is not named in the history of the Passion, probably because he was already died.

His cult was celebrated in East before and, in the XIV century, it achieved a great consideration in West too. Pope Pio IX proclaimed Joseph the patrono f the universal Church.

Saint Joseph is celebrated on the 19th of March and, also, on the 1st of May, as the patrono f the workers.

He is traditionally illustrated with the Baby and the lily, with a saw or with a carpenter square ruler.
