Befana An Italian Gift Giver

Here are some pictures of another figure the artist has carved.
Befana is an Italian legend. Befana was visited by the wisemen when they were searching for the Christ Child. They asked her to join them, but she was too busy with housework. After they were gone she realized the importance of their mission. She set out to find the Christ Child and bring him gifts. Now each year on the Feast of the Epiphany, Befana visits all children in Italy, leaving gifts.

Please note that this figure was a commission work and is sold. It is shown here for your enjoyment.
