Blown away by the skill, detail and dedication that is put into these wooden sculptures. The artists brother gave us a nice tour and I would recommend everyone visiting or just passing through the area to visit this place.

Visiting this artists studio is something that will remain with me for a lifetime...I'm in awe of his work, his talent and his humbleness! It's not the size of the sculptures it's the remarkable detail that you can only see if you visit.

I think it would take about 1.5 hours to drive, it is west of Hersonissos and inland on the road to Anoyia. It is literally on the road through the tiny village and you need to look out for it on the right if coming from... More
