The Holy Family "on the road" - Mary plays with her infant son while her husband, from beneath the lacy cover of an oak tree ponders a nearby angel fussing with the fronds of an immature desert palm - one additional figure might be John the Baptist who often appears with the family. ( Jim Hahn 03/23/95)
