We have just baked three beautiful holy-themed holy water stoups decorated “Alla Raffaellesca”. These are ceramics embellished with meticulously hand-painted sacred figures depicting respectively the archangel Gabriel in the Annunciation, St. Joseph and the baby Jesus in a tender embrace and the Madonna and Child enthroned.
Holy water stoup Saint Joseph and the Child Jesus
This beautifully shaped font, modeled with leaves and a container for holy water, features a depiction of St. Joseph with the baby Jesus in a tender fatherly embrace.
Holy water stoup archangel Gabriel – Annunciation
In this ceramic, depicting the archangel Gabriel in the Annunciation, the decoration is characterized by ornaments and brightly colored flowers that recall illuminated manuscripts.
Holy water stoup Madonna with Child enthroned
In this holy water stoup, as per pictorial tradition, the Madonna and Child Jesus carry roses in their hands, a symbol of grace and incorruption, but also a reference to the crown of thorns.
