If you aren’t aware of the rich history of woodcarving, then you’ll find it interesting that woodcarving is one of the oldest types of art there is. In fact – artists have been using wood since the Stone Age to carve beautiful pieces of art. The reasoning behind this is simple – wood has always been easily available.
Although wood is more vulnerable than other materials – it absorbs water and is vulnerable to airborne fungi and insects, making it degrade faster than other materials – its use can be traced all over the world.
Woodcarving was used in Oceanic art for ceremonial canoes, as well as by American Indians for totem poles. Woodcarving was quite popular later in Europe as well, especially in Medieval, Gothic, and Romanesque architecture – such as in churches and cathedrals. Woodcarving has continued to be popular even in the twentieth century, such as its use in folk art. Original artists used chisels to build their canoes and totem poles.
These are just a couple of examples of early woodcarving art forms. Be sure to contact us at Screamin’ Designs for information about our novelty items. We donate 10 percent of our after-tax profits to the Hope for the Warriors organization.
