Thought you would like to see this re-post of a historic video tribute to the wood carvers in Brienz Switzerland and their one-hundred-year-old tradition to carve wooden animals and folklore souvenirs for the English tourists coming to see the Alps. On hot days like this, thinking of folk who sit in a cool basement creating chips from a linden block sound like a bit of heaven.
