“There are very few images of the Holy Couple and this one speaks powerfully of their relationship. I saw it first in the Carmelite monastery at Minto and was greatly moved by it. The parish commissioned woodcarver Engelbert Piccolruaz created this shrine for us and he has done it superbly.”

Reverend Canon Keith Dean-Jones, Parish Priest Taree

“Over the years, you have carved some beautiful pieces for me; statues of the Baptism of our Lord and of Mary and Joseph for St Thomas’ Church Cardiff, and a pulpit crucifix for St John’s Church Taree. They are superb works of art, and I am very indebted to you for your work.”
