Val Gardena wood carvings are well-known beyond national borders for their intrinsic quality and artistic value resulting from the devotion and passion with which woodcarvers, among which master Karl Demtez, have been undertaking this fascinating art for centuries. In Val Gardena wood carving was already practised around mid-17th century due to the poverty of the inhabitants, who, in order to supplement meagre land proceeds, started carving wood. This way, Val Gardena inhabitants were also able to make tools suitable for farming and household utensils.
