Our artisans use varied woodworking techniques to create custom artworks with intricate details to satisfy your every need.

HAPEWooden crucifixes: production and painting

We work together with you to select the type of wood for the creation of your custom wooden crucifixes. Many kinds of wood can be used, from linden to ash. For outdoor use, we highly recommend stone-pine or oak crucifixes, as these types of wood are particularly resistant to the elements.

You’ll be amazed by the mastery of our painters, who use their experience to put the finishing touches to your wooden crucifix. Our skilled polychromists will take care of the decoration and gilding of works of all sizes. They are masters of delicacy and patience, both essential traits when carefully decorating and embellishing precious woodcarvings.
