Woodcarvings Franco

With our webpage we would like to introduce to you the pleasure of woodcarving. The carved figurines and objects are precious and timeless works of art originating in the 400 years old woodcarving tradition of Val Gardena.

For more than four generations the woodcarvings of Franco have been carved and hand-painted in our South Tyrolean studios. The local artisans carve the wood of our native, alpine mountain forests and paint every single figurine with elaborateness and great attention to detail. Hence, every woodcarving receives an individual touch and becomes a unique piece of art.

Our collection primarily comprises religious motives like Madonnas, nativity scenes, angels, Crucifixes, and statues of saints, but we also offer profane carvings such as ballerinas, children’s figurines, animals and chess sets.

We hope you will enjoy browsing our website and find as much pleasure in our woodcarvings as we do.
