It wasn’t until the Industrial Revolution that design became a vocation in and of itself, and ornately carved furniture and architectural details became available to the middle class. In this presentation, Mr. Vrba will give a brief history of artistic expression from the Paleolithic Period through modern times and how it connects to the art of woodcarving.
