When the Magi came in search of Jesus, they went to Herod the Great in Jerusalem to ask where to find the newborn "King of the Jews". Herod became paranoid that the child would threaten his throne, and sought to kill him (2:1–8). Herod initiated the Massacre of the Innocents in hopes of killing the child (Matthew 2:16–Matthew 2:18). But an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and warned him to take Jesus and his mother into Egypt (Matthew 2:13).
Egypt was a logical place to find refuge, as it was outside the dominions of King Herod, but both Egypt and Judea were part of the Roman Empire, linked by a coastal road known as "the way of the sea", making travel between them easy and relatively safe.
This collection of statues is remarkable in the details achieved. Any serious collector will appreciate the meticulous care taken in all the small details that complete the sculpture. The hand-painted color accents and antique finish. This statue feels very solid when held, and is quite heavy for its size. Each statue comes packaged in sculptured polystyrene inner packing for safe world-wide shipping.
