Javier's story

Javier is a skilled woodcarver who creates relief panels with religious themes. He would like to stock up on high quality raw materials.

Javier has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is his story:

Javier strives to continue his family's carving tradition. "It is a legacy we have inherited from our ancestors. I decided to go my own way as I wanted to work on my original designs. I have always enjoyed carving! I love the look of wood, its color and natural appearance. My brother taught me how to find the detail in every little corner. I joined my family when they were commissioned to work on a screen for the Church of the Assumption in my village. It meant a lot to each one of us."

"Woodcarving is my family's legacy. When I saw how my sculptures were well received and appreciated, I felt that God has placed me on the road to continue expressing myself through my work. This experience is a blessing for me, and you are a part of it."
