The art of wood carving in Oberammergau and South Tyrol has been a tradition for centuries. Sacred, profane and modern works of art of the highest quality. The sculptors attach great importance to the use of selected materials in order to guarantee the best possible quality and authenticity of their sculptures.
The wood sculptors produce your works of art in meticulous and precise manual work as well as in machine work. The best wood to carve is the wood found in the alpine forests. Here is how it works: the stem of the trees is cut in large boards.
After being kiln-dryed, they are cut into little cubes, according to the size of the sculptures that are meant to be carved. Out of these little wooden cubes, expert artisans carve the figurines accurately by means of a pantograph.
Once the work is completed, he revises once more every single figurine eliminating any imperfections. The woodcarver carves by hand all details to complete the art work.
The last step of the process is the decoration. The finishing of the figurines is executed exclusively by hand: patience and love for details are features of this last step.
In addition, the colors used vary from figure to figure so that you can say that every sculpture is a piece of art. Even small damages, imprefections or drying cracks at antique or vintage figurines give them an additional special character: wood is a living material!
