We sell woodcarvings made in Oberammergau and produced in Italy (South Tyrol). Most of the carvings shown in our website are precarved by using a pantograph. They are finished by a woodcarver, who carves by hand all details to complete the art work.

The painting of the figurines is done exclusively by hand.

Wood carvers usually prefer three types of wood, the hard maple wood, the soft lime wood and the also soft pine wood.

Some of the woodcarvings are also available as complete handcarved figurines. Please ask for special prices.

All size, measurements, colors and other descriptions are approximate only and subject to manufacturers normal tolerances.

To clean wood carvings, it is best to use a dry cotton cloth and a soft brush. This allows you to dust off carvings and polish something at the same time. Under no circumstances should detergents, water or damp cloths be used.

If you take this into account, your future generations will also be able to
enjoy the carvings.
