Selected examples

Abbot's staff made of pine wood

An abbot's staff was carved from pine wood for the Heiligenkreuz Abbey . In the bend is an amplexus depiction (the crucified man detaches his arms from the cross and embraces Saint Bernard; a core scene of Cistercian spirituality). The coat of arms and the motto were carved into the staff at the back of the bend.

Bust as an instrument head made of light pine wood

For a musician, a bust was carved based on an individual model as the instrument head of a lute. The base was hollowed out to the exact dimensions to fit it perfectly to the tip of the instrument.

Company logo carved in lime wood

For a company in the digital platform sector, the company logo was hand-carved out of wood. The large format logo was displayed in the meeting rooms and a smaller version in the offices.

Minion carved from pine wood

The popular character from the animated film "The Minions" was carved by one of our sculptors from wonderfully scented pine wood. Optionally, the base can also be provided with an individual dedication or signature.

Bodybuilder carved from lime wood

Our carvers don't just make figures of saints, angel putti, coats of arms or nativity figures. At the customer's request, a bodybuilder was carved by a wood carver from Ortisei in Val Gardena. To protect the sculpture, a wax was applied after carving to protect the wood.

Wooden carved coat of arms

Elaborately carved coat of arms, based on a historical model, then colored by hand by the barrel painter.
