Figures brought to life by the woodcarver’s skill

The Seiffen district is traditionally known as a preserve of the woodturner. Woodcarving skills are called for only at the stage where the finishing touch is to be applied. There are relatively few craftsmen who devote themselves exclusively to carving, a process that involves patiently whittling away the wood until the three-dimensional form begins to emerge.

For delicate figures, the wood of choice is that of the linden tree. The final figure is often painstakingly enhanced with hand-painted colours.
