Josef Freinademetz and John of Nepomuk

During August I made some holiday in Ortisei, South Tyrol, Italy,
the home of the famous wood carvers.

In the retail shop of Albert Comploj I bought 2 very nice wood figures:

Joseph Freinademetz wearing his Mao-Tzû
See my article:
I nearly every church in the Val Gardena you find a painting of this Saint.
St. Ulrich, Ortisei
 La cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta e San Cassiano

The wood carver did not carved the biretta in the correct way:
The left blade (wing, horn) should be at the back side.
