The statue of Joseph and Jesus represents the stories of the humanity of Joseph and the Divinity of Jesus as told in the bible and throughout generations. Dramatism The symbolism of Jesus stretching his arms represents his future of reaching out to the world and mimics the future of the cross. Dramatization could be represented in this statue by Jesus holding out his hands, which depicts that he is open and there for his people to save them from sin. In addition, the way his hands and arms are positioned foreshadows Jesus hanging on the cross.
