Our woodcarvings come from Val Gardena in the Dolomites, where the woods are alive and provide a unique material to create wonderful pieces of art. With this material our skilled artists can create unique wooden sculptures that are a product of tradition, culture and technology.
Today, some of the woodcarvers produce their art works moved by passion, some others thanks to excellent personal skills, and others still simply because it is their job. However, they all carry on a tradition that is unique in the world and that is now more alive than ever.
Over the centuries pieces of art have been created as a cultural product that reflects the human spirit. It is a creative process based on thought and intuition, that results in a variety of forms and shapes. What specific shape a sculpture gains, depends on the artist’s current thoughts at any specific period of time. Baroque woodcarvings, for example, reflected the way of thinking of the most eccentric artists of that time. Similarly, today’s modern and technological sculptures are the epitomes of our present time.
The materials used to create statues have always been the ones provided by nature. We just need to think about how stone was used by our ancestors to create pieces of art 30.000 years ago. Inspired by the ancient sculpture, woodcarvers today use a natural material to create the most amazing wooden statues. In addition, these days, refined technologies, as well as modern machineries are available and can be help the artists to produce high quality figurines. Thus, thanks to the great craftsmanship and the most advanced technology, we have the possibility to meet any personal request of our customers. In fact, we as professionals are able to carve any wooden statue from the very first step, delivering the most unique sculptures that are completely hand carved and painted. For further information about the production of our figurines please visit the section “We realize your ideas”.
Starting from the assumption that wood is a material that can be shaped, anything you can conceive can consequently be produced. If you provide an idea, we create the statue as you wish it to be. Your statue will be completely handcrafted and consequently unique. This will be certified by the province of Bolzano, which will deliver a certification and protection label. The Chamber of Commerce of Bolzano introduced this trademark in 1969 with the aim of protecting and discerning the sculptures that are entirely hand carved from the ones that are mechanically produced in sets. The province of Bolzano applies a mark, a regularly registered silver disc, together with a document that certifies that the sculpture is hand made.
