    Who is the man with the ax?

    I came across this painting with Mary, Jesus and a man with an ax. The painting is autographed at the bottom left hand corner by "Giovanni", but I just can't figure out who the man with an ax is. Any ideas?

    I would say the man with axe is Joseph, who often is portayed having tools for carpentry.

      I did a quick search online and found one other similar to this.  That person said it is Joseph.

    This would be Joseph, the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
