Wood Items - Catholic
Wood Carving is a centuries old craft that has been mastered and passed from generation to generation in a small town in Laguna province called Paete. Paete is the FIlipino word for chiesel!. The crafts are so good that a life size crucifix in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome was made in Paete, so is the ornately carved pulpit of mission Dolores in San Francisco, the pulpit of church of San Cayetano in Guanajuato, Mexico, the holy family in St. Joseph's shrine in Sta. Cruz California and many more. The local folk hero is a master carver called Mariano Madriñan. In the year 1882, he received a diploma of award and the King Alfonso XII of Spain Medal of Honor for his Mater Dolorosa, a magnificent work of art which was exhibited at the International Exposition held in Amsterdam that year.
