Statues & Reliefs

The artistic tradition of painted wood sculpture is one that properly belongs to the Church, as it is under her auspices that it reached the fullest expression of its genius. The sculptors of Talleres de Arte Granda continue this noble tradition of the identifying art of Roman Catholicism.

Various woods and materials are available upon request, for both indoor and outdoor use. The specialty of the sculpture workshop is statuary hand-carved from birch or cedar, and finished by hand in one of four ways:

  • Natural polished wood
  • Natural wood with soft coloring
  • Polychrome: The wood is covered with primer and painted in color. Gold leaf details are added.
  • Estofado: The entire statue is primed and then covered in gold leaf. The artist paints over the gold leaf with polychrome and then etches intricate patterns in the colorful painted surface, revealing the gold underneath. This is a traditional Spanish technique; the results are extraordinarily beautiful.

In addition to wood sculpture, the artisans of Talleres de Arte Granda sculpt reliefs in clay, to be cast in resin or copper. These add beauty to the walls of churches, and narrate scenes from the life of Our Lord and the saints. If cast in resin, they can be finished in monochrome, polychrome or estofado.

The price of each statue is determined by its size and its finish. Please contact the office in Chicago for a quotation. Do not hesitate to inquire about other models, as there are hundres of model statues in the Granda collection. Custom designs are also possible.
