Religious art of Val Gardena
The solid faith of the Ladin people of Val Gardena in South Tyrol has stated this form of Christian art over the years which has been valued over the times. In the valley, the sculpting of Christian figures is the largest part of wood art that reaches its highest expression by the creation of wooden nativity scenes. In the valley, most likely in every home you can find a wooden sculpture representing a religious figure. Today, many tourists hardly return back home without having selected and bought any wooden sculpture.
A GIFT SUGGESTION FOR BAPTISM AND WEDDINGS
A religious figure might be a beautiful gift for any baptism event. The sculpture of Holy Mary with a gentle look to protect the baptized or any sculpture of the Saint whose name it holds. For two young partners instead, a relief to hang in the bedroom blessing their marriage, a valuable gift that will escort their joint life.
