Visiting Dresden and the Ore Mountains: Are they still producing Wood Pictures?
17. June 2020
I was lucky to have made a wonderful new friend in 2017. Brigitte is very interested in art (talented, too!) and she knows a lot about German Wall Figures. She invited me to Dresden which made a wonderful start for our Ore Mountains trip. My father had lent me his camper, so we drove up to the Ore Mountains where the Wall Figures had been produced from the 1950s to the 1980s. But not anymore. This is what we found out after asking many nice people: German Wall Figures do belong to the past. Even at the places were the production had once taken place, there was hardly a person remembering them. Brigitte had also arranged an appointment in the Dresden Folk Art Museum.
