11-piece miner's chapel from the Eckert Volkskunstwerkstatt in Deutschneudorf in the Ore Mountains
Traditional craftsmanship from the Ore Mountains
The Ore Mountains have been known for centuries for their rich tradition in arts and crafts, especially when it comes to Christmas decorations. An outstanding example of this mastery of craftsmanship is the Erzgebirge miners' chapel from the Eckert folk art workshop in Deutschneudorf. This 11-piece, hand-painted miniature chapel is a testament to the attention to detail and dedication, with which artisans in the Erzgebirge create their works.
Unique design and high-quality materials
Each figure of the miner's chapel is carefully crafted by hand from local woods such as maple, beech, alder, ash, spruce, lime and pine. This selection of materials guarantees not only the durability and stability of each figure, but also their unique texture and coloring. The traditional,classic design honors the mining tradition of the Erzgebirge and makes each figurine truly unique. The colorful painting additionally emphasizes the fine details and brings the figures to life.
Handcrafted: A sign of quality
The Eckert folk art workshop stands for quality "Made in Germany". Each Miner's Chapel set is carefully handcrafted, which means, that each figurine is an original Eckert. This craftsmanship from the Erzgebirge reflects the craftsmanship and tradition of the region, which is passed down from generation to generation. The attention to detail is visible in every figurine, from the careful selection of wood to the fine, hand-painted finish.
Versatile decoration for the Advent-and Christmas season
With a width of 55 cm, a height of 13 cm and a length of 5 cm, the miner's chapel is an impressive decoration for any interior during the Advent- and Christmas season. The 11 figures of the chapel can be arranged flexibly, so that they come into their own in different rooms and on different surfaces. Whether on the mantelpiece, the windowsill or in the middle of the dining table - the miner's chapel spreads a festive atmosphere everywhere and is reminiscent of the deep-rooted traditions of the Ore Mountains.
The Eckert Volkskunstwerkstatt in Deutschneudorf has not only created a piece of Erzgebirge craftsmanship, but also a symbol of the Advent- and Christmas season, that creates a special atmosphere in every home. The miner's chapel is therefore more than just a decoration; it is a piece of cultural history, made with passion and precision, ready, to be passed on from generation to generation.
