The town of Paete in the province of Laguna is very famous for its wood carvers. Many religious statues are done here as well. I paid a visit to one such workshop on a recent visit to the Philippines.
Padre Pio is pretty much in demand here. That's him in the back, still lacking a head and hands.
Etching the elaborate designs of Padre Pio's traditional Roman chasuble.
He has a handsome head and proper vestments, but I guess the hands come last.
Rows and rows of miniature Madonna and Child.
Ever wonder where many statues of St. Pedro Calungsod come from?
