In the Alps of Northern Italy the region is rich in precious woods and carving is an ancient traditional past time during the long winter season. The deep faith of these people naturally expressed itself in the form of elaborate wooden crosses, altars, and nativity scenes.
To maintain the quality and tradition craftsman continue to use exclusively high-quality woods and produce sculpted wood art in limited editions. Trees must be at least 75 years old and the wood must be dried in a natural way for several years before the artist can begin his work in order to form a piece of fine art in wood.
The quality and uniqueness of these sculptures give them lasting value as they find a special place in your home.
