The wood art tradition has a long history in Val Gardena, Italy. The tradition of woodcarving dates back to the XVII century, when farmers started producing wood toys and utensils during the long winter season. The peasants than used to sell the items at spring markets.

Time passed by and woodcarvers improved their abilities and skills, they began manufacturing high quality wooden works, which with the time got more and more value. In the XVIII century the art of wood carving became the most important economic activity in the valley. The masters started to sell their masterpieces all over the world.
Comes on a later black wooden base, Glass Eyes.
