Known for his designs of religous figures and cherubs, Ulrich Bernardi, a native of the Groeden Valley, he has made a life of modelling and designing. The spirit of his work is embodied in the European folklore. Simple attire and innocent expressions are the characteristics of hos work. He has romanced the famous ANRI “Original Florentiner nativity” in the true ageless European style.
Since he was a child, Ulrich Bernardi dreamed of becoming a woodcarver… not such an unusual dream if you’re born in the Groeden Valley in the Dolomite Mountains of Northern Italy. There woodcarving has been practiced as an art, with skills passed from generation to generation, for more than 300 years.
