Handycraft

Cembran pine wood is soft and easy to carve, and thus is perfect to make furniture and carved objects. The wood is first planed flat, then assembled before the design is marked out with a compass and finally carved with a knife. There is an infinite number of these designs that symbolize daily life in the Queyras (suns, rosettes, daisies, the line of the eye....). This knowledge is passed down from generation to generation.
