An art that goes far beyond in the past. It is a true form of folklore art that has come to existance from the carefree sheperds of the long forgotten country, who crafted household items, Saints' talismans for their children, ornamentations. These were crafted with almost no use of tools but with much patience and desire. 

In the following pages you can take a glimpse of some woodcarved items-the theme is greek- out of a big variaty that I own. These are crafted on wood from greek forests, used especially for this kind of work. You can also take a look of the famous crowncases, where the newlyweds place the crowns after their wedding. It is an old custom that is still maintained by the majority of Greek people.
