Forest painting is a traditional art form in Germany and one of the oldest forms of wood carving.
The artists create intricate, hand-carved works using a variety of materials, including birch, ash, oak, and other hardwoods.
They can use wood from the same area, or from other nearby forested areas.
The wood is then used for decoration, often to decorate or to create a naturalistic landscape.
The art is typically performed in small gatherings, or at woodworking workshops.
The craft, which was traditionally performed in the forest, is a form of art that has been exported worldwide, and it has become more popular in recent years as the European Union adopted stricter environmental standards.
