The material wood is in great demand in Bhutan and is used in many ways. Many objects that are made out of plastic in the western world are still wooden there. Out of thirteen traditional arts and crafts, in three categories wood is the raw material: woodwork (Shingzo), wood turning (Shagzo) and carving (Parzo). Shingzo includes mainly carpentry. In Shagzo e.g. beautiful vessels are shaped. Parzo is the art of carving, which includes also wooden masks. In our shop, however, we present masks separately.
