Wood Carving

Fine woods are carved with great delicacy to create furniture and utilitarian items such as grinders and spoon. The products are decorated with excellent mastery with the help of gouges generating soft textures and interesting reliefs that give life to elaborate designs inspired by the flora and fauna of the region.
