ANRI nativity set again in linden wood – as they once were.
The ANRI Nativity in this new series captures the antiqued/aged look reminiscent of the traditional craftsmanship. Carved in linden wood, each piece is hand painted in special water colors by skilled artists.
Linden wood, different from maple wood, is very soft and makes it possible to carve the figurines more sharp edging. Whereas the maple is painted with oil based paints, the linden wood is painted in warm water color paints.
For the linden collection, ANRI uses only selected lime wood. This wood is air-dried until it reaches a humidity of 10%. Each raw piece is then cut out accordingly.
Each single item is hand carved according to the artist’s master piece. The carver requires up to 20 cutting irons in many different sizes and forms to facilitate the production of a figure. The soft lime wood is particularly suitable for carving and allows each figure its own special character. As a result, a truly unique piece is created.
All items are hand painted. Trained painters use water colors and the finest brushes, as they allow the wood grain to remain visible. A specific follow-up treatment lends these figures the originality of a genuine and antique woodcarving.
