As promised last week, here are the first pictures of our Nativity in its new location. The transport was a bit of a hassle but in the end it all went well and we are very proud to share it with you and spread a little Christmas mood! Can you tell the statue on the left is more than 4 m high? Not really eh? What a gorgeous surrounding and did you see those snow topped mountains in the back?
Thank you very much Corvara for having us!

I came across this fine painting by Steve Penley (photo by Jo Reeves Photography) showing a very colorful Mark Twain and since its his birthday I thought it would be nice to share this with you. Such a colorful and charismatic character that still inspires us today!

atelier wilfried, blessed Thanksgiving, bronze, bronze art, statue, statue in bronze, thanksgiving
On this special day we ought to remind ourselves of the importance of sharing, caring and spending quality time with our family and loved ones, because in the end that is all that matters. This statue in bronze shows the celebration of the harvest and the family is raising the food to the sky to thank God and mother nature.

Little anticipation for you! This is where our giant nativity is going to be displayed this year. We are very excited and honored and could not have asked for a better place in the middle of the Dolomites. More pictures will be posted next week once the nativity is in place, so stay tuned! #Nativity #Corvara http://ow.ly/i/3Msw8

The great surrealist Rene Magritte was born today and this is my personal favorite work of his: The psychologist! I love the disgusted look of his face… http://ow.ly/i/3L4ki #wikipaintings #surrealism

Since this great company apparently patented its first razor blade today in 1904, I thought this would be a great painting to thank them. What would we do without razors blades? Just be a hairy, sweaty society wasting even more water than we currently do. A teacher once told me that mankind started losing its body hair when starting to wear clothes, but than I thought, how come we never lost that darn hair down there? Well, guess that will remain one of the mysteries of mankind…
What is hairy on the outside, wet on the inside, starts with a “c” and ends with a “t”?
A coconut! You should be ashamed of yourself!
Have a wonderful hairy weekend my friends..
