The Val Gardena Collection features wooden items that are hand carved by talented artisans from this region in Italy. The valley is famous for its wooden art tradition. Thanks to the great workmanship of these artisans, two art schools opened in Val Gardena where students have become famous all over the world for their unique, high-quality pieces characterized by an extremely high artistic value. Here, many wood craftsmen work together in order to realise all these wonderful creations: the wood sculptor, the wood carver, the wood engraver, the decorator, the painter and the gilder.
This wooden carving is Brand new. She is a special, beautiful "putto", cherub head that faces left and features a rose on her headband. Completely carved by hand and painstakingly painted, she would look at home in any decor. What I have found is that customers who add this type of art to their homes, say that a new level of warmth is created. They can't help but smile:)

Maria Pearl passed away at the young age of 16 from an AVM which is similar to a brain aneurysm. Her story is that of a beautiful girl who sought to make a difference in the lives of others in some way, everyday of her life.
