Nativity figurines ‘Ox and Donkey’, hand-painted

The ‘Ulrich Nativity’ from Gherdëina (Dolomites) is considered to be one of the most beautiful nativity scenes at all. It owes its existence to the flowering period of woodcarving here in the 17th century which had developed from the peasant secondary occupation into an independent handicraft. The figurines impress by their very delicate working out the details up to expressive facial features. Carving of fine sycamore wood, painted to the finest detail by hand - each figurine is unique.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
