Between the 17th and 18th centuries, a flourishing woodcarving industry developed in Val Gardena, which is now in the Italian province of South Tyrol. A backpacker and woodcarver community travelled by foot to all European cities, as far away as Lisbon, Madrid, Prague and St. Petersburg, to sell the products of hundreds of wood carvers. Finally, in the 19th century, wood carved toys and collectible dolls, also known as Dutch dolls, were carved by the hundreds in Val Gardena. The DOLFI Museum at the headquarters in Urtijëi displays a large collection of examples of wood carvings from the history of DOLFI from this region. With this specific woodcarving of the little girl with flowers carved in the workshops of DOLFI Ortisei, we can appreciate the details of woodcarving, combined with the shapes and artistic proportions of absolute value.
