The artistry of wood carving in the Black Forest dates back to the early 16th century. In the small village of Oberammergau, the Albl family takes great pride in its long history in wood carving. Their family tree has been documented back as far as 1556. Their generations of experience and core values have helped to shape this wonderful village and the forest it calls home (called the "magic mountain"). The family continues the wood carving tradition to this day. The Bavarian State Woodcarving School is located in Oberammercau. Among the celebrated former students is the German artist Wolfram Aichele. His processional church staff depicting Christ on a donkey can be seen in the church of St Peter and St Paul. The streets of central Oberammergau are home to dozens of woodcarver shops, with pieces ranging from religious subjects, to toys, to humorous portraits.
