Ulrich Bernardi

Ulrich Bernardi was born in St. Ulrich in the Grödener Valley. His extraordinary talent for sculpture was revealed while he was at art school. During his apprenticeship, he discovered his passion for nativity carving, which never left him. Ulrich Bernardi’s fame has long since spread beyond his homeland, and his works have won prizes at numerous exhibitions.

Known for his designs of religious figures and cherubs, he has made a life of modelling and designing. The spirit of his creations are embodied in the European folklore. Simple attire and innocent expressions are the characteristics of his work.

    I have several nativity pieces that are signed by the artist. It looks like Xmere V Senomer is signed on the bottoms. We purchased these pieces 25 years ago. Is this artist still working? For example, the Infant box has Bernardi on it with the following numbers: 79770,01C

    Our church has beautifully carved Stations of the Cross ( Square ) that are colorized and apparently made by ANRI- I am trying to ascertain which carver made these stations. My understanding is that the coloring is unique or were they made with different woods?
