Lotte Sievers-Hahn. Hand-Carved and Hand-Painted Manger Figures

The unique style of these manger figures goes back to Lotte Sievers (1908–1987). Encouraged by a teacher, Sievers took up an education as a wood sculptor and developed a style all her own: with a few cuts, the figure becomes visible and immediately shows character. In the wood workshop Sievers-Hahn in Lower Saxony, the figures are made from limewood in accordance with the designs of company founder Lotte Sievers. The figures get their colourful appearance by hand-painting with oil-based paint so that the natural grain of the wood shines through.
