Description

This story is greatly cherished by believers for its portrayal of Jesus’ grace, mercy, and love for the outcasts. The figure depicted in this carving was ostracized due to her status as a lowly woman and an immoral prostitute. As a Samaritan woman living in Schechem (modern-day Nablus in the West Bank) she was also considered an enemy of the Jews. Simply by speaking with her Jesus broke the strict religious taboos and cultural expectations of his day; but in doing so He demonstrated he had come for all people, regardless of race, gender, the sins they committed, or the backgrounds they grew up in.

Note: Due to the dark swirling grains of the olive wood each carving is completely unique while maintaining the distinct hand-carved form seen in the image.
