Wood-carving

Crete, traditional and popular arts.Wood-carving

This craft, with a lengthy history that came to the fore in the Byzantine period, produces quality items mostly in the realm of carved furniture and practical utilitarian objects, as well as some of ecclesiastical purpose. Carved works are dominated by geometric-inspired decorative schemes and motifs enriched with themes taken from the plant and animal kingdoms.

Even today in many, and especially mountain, places you can find excellent small items made from wood.
