from the Bernardi Wood Art
, of Val Gardena
Completely made of hand carved wood and hand painted in full color oils it measures 24 inches in height.
The "Little Flower" is depicted in full habit and holds the crucifix with a spray of roses.
Carved from the finest kiln dried lindenwood from the forests of the Italian Alps, each piece is hand painted, one layer at a time, in the oldest time honored artistic tradition.
In the valleys of northern Italy's Alps the Bernardi family of artisans have been creating exquisite nativities and statuary generation after generation for over 400 years. Each unique piece is then hand stained, painted and gilded with impeccable attention to detail - no two exactly alike.
Their work has been chosen to grace the churches, villas, cathedrals and homes of Europe for 400 years, and now, this beautiful statuary will be available in the United States from In His Name Catholic Store.
