from: Bernardi Wood Art of Val Gardena
Completely made of hand carved wood and hand painted in full color oils and is then finished with real 24kt gold leaf in an Old Gold antiqued applique.
This unique and touching Holy Family measures 14 inches in height. A lovely devotional addition to a chapel or home at Christmas or anytime we celebrate the family!
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 is available in the United States from In His Name Catholic Store.
