Thank you for this very interesting documentary. Quite amazing skills and creativity. It is difficult to comprehend that such talent could be found in a relatively small village, but perhaps that is the best place to look for it. People have to be creative just to live in such a place. Woodcarving is very special to me as it requires a lot more than just technical expertise to create really fine work.
