In Gardena Valley woodcarving, painting and gilding are crafts with a long famous tradition. The beginning of Gardena's artistic woodcarving dates back to the middle of the 17th century. Since then woodcarving became the most important economic activity in the valley, getting well known all over the world through its unique masterpieces and original products. The permanent exhibition ART52 of Gardenese arts and crafts shows hand carved work of individually working sculptors as well as products of large organized workshops.
