In Val Gardena the tradition of wood carving shows a long centuries history.
Sculpting sacred figures to adorn churches, that was the beginning. Only times later, toys and smaller figures were designed for homes and everyday’s life as well.
Entire families devoted themselves to wood art; men sculpted in the workshop, women back home painted the figures joined by daughters and staging girls. Down the way, the work was quite increasing!
Thus, women could combine household with the job and basically support the family as well.
