Visited the shop they gave beautiful Xmas decorations holly family sculptures. You can even see the carves at work. The items are pretty expensive but each of them is a masterpiece!

It's amazing what lonely winter days can do for the imagination. The wood carvers from this region work wonders with a piece of wood. The museum also displays cuckoo clocks and music boxes, all testament to the skills of the people.

You can actually see the people carving things. We wanted to buy so many things, but alas you can't take everything home.
