The art of wood carving
The wooden Buddha statues that we sell are mainly made out of teakwood. Woodcarvings from Buddha statues can only be made according very strict rules and according ancient traditions.
Many traditional woodcarvers start to learn their profession at a very jong age. As a child they work around temples, pagodas and in the workshop of their father.
When we buy damages statues in Burma, they are repaired by professional carpenters, see the movie below.
