The Madonna of Brienz

Brienz is renowned as a centre of excellence for woodcarving. Location to Switzerland’s first ever Woodcarving Museum.  Years ago, there was a great flood and everything in the museum got washed away into the lake.  This  head statue was one of those that were recovered.  As one can see, the piece is still in very good shape.  It must be the very clean water in Switzerland.
