Taught by Salesian priests of the Mato Grosso congregation, brothers Simeon and German Ramirez Montalvo learned the secrets of woodcarving. They work principally in cedar and mahogany wood, painted with oils. 'Every piece is an opportunity to express our profound relationship with the Catholic faith,' German says. They also choose themes based on Andean culture.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
