Wood Carving

Wood carving (xyloglyphy) is a form of working wood by means of a cutting tool held in the hand, resulting in a wooden figure, or in the sculptural ornamentation of a wooden object.
Some of the finest extant examples of early wood carving are from the Middle Ages in Italy and France, where the typical themes of that era were Christian iconography.
In England many complete examples remain from the 16th and 17th century, where oak was the preferred medium in this case.

Macedonian Wood Carving

The wood carving (Macedonian: kopanicarstvo, rezbarstvo) in Macedonia date many centuries back in the past.
