Wood-carving is not by-gone

My wish is to gather as many wood-carving admirers as I can to make them feel the magic it carries. It is true that its roots are intertwined with the distant past, but this does not mean that it is an anachronism; it is a proof of eternity. Therefore, in recent years designers and architects turned again to wood-carving giving it an opportunity to express itself in contemporary furnishing.

I am a descender of a family having deep traditions in this craft and art. It is quite natural that I feel the need to preserve and enhance, where it is possible, the experience being accumulated for years. It is hard for me to surpass my teacher and grandfather, Ivan Maranov, but I am not aiming any race. This site"s purpose is to remind and tell about him, since his contribution to Bulgarian wood-carving development and recognition is enormous.
