This is the companion piece to Ismael Mulera’s Mother & Child and stands at the front of the church on the side where the men sit. The staff imparts to Joseph a commanding presence.

This is an unusual depiction. The work is designed expressly to encourage the menfolk of the congregation to take a more active part in the raising of their children.
