Each piece is meticulously hand painted. The artist applies layer upon layer of color until the desired depth of color has been achieved.

From the Studios of G.DeBrekht, we provide the following description:
"The talented artists of G.DeBrekht Artistic Studios have created the exquisite Masterpiece Collection for our home and holiday celebrations for over three decades. G.DeBrekht has developed a distinct style of our very own and established a recognizable brand since we first introduced this combination of distinctive hand carving and decorative painting to the marketplace. This concept has become a G. DeBrekht trade mark. Each intricate piece is awe inspiring and is layered with complex elements and subtle surprises designed to delight every admirer. G.DeBrekht has upheld its tradition in creating the superior collection of distinguished, hand crafted decorative art sculptures found [on this page]. Our studio has worked passionately with every new concept, design, carving, color choice and stroke of paint. The final result is a true Masterpiece.
G.DeBrekht is home to the best and the brightest international artists, hand carvers and free hand painters. G.DeBrekht Artistic Studios has remained committed to Old World craftsmanship, resisting the trend to automate the production process, yet continues to be the most innovative in design and creation. Each piece will have spent countless hours in the hands of our talented artists. [T]herefore, no two pieces will ever be identical and slight variations in each work of art should be anticipated.
Quality continues to be our top priority. Each sculpture in the Masterpiece Collection is first hand carved by the master carver. The collection is fashioned from aged linden wood. The seasoning process will cull the premium quality portions of the wood for carving, while discarding approximately 60% of the timber due to splitting, molding or other imperfections revealed during the aging process. This process ensures that the Masterpiece sculptures are of heirloom quality and will provide enjoyment for future generations.
The sculpture is then delivered to the artists for embelishment. As many as five artists will contribute their artistic ability in order to complete a single piece. Each figure is meticulously free hand painted. For the Signature Masterpiece Collection, the artist is faced with the difficult task of applying layer upon layer of watercolor until the desired depth of color has been achieved. Each artisan relies on their own skill in pursuit of perfection.
Each sculpture in the Masterpiece Collection is limited either to the year of production or by number, which is indicated on the bottom of each sculpture. Each piece is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. The collection itself is limited by the mere nature of the handcrafted work, limited by the number we are able to produce at any given time.
Each Masterpiece is an original work of art and should be cared for as such. Avoid placing these sculptures in direct sunlight. Dust figures with a soft feather duster or soft cloth, do not apply household cleaning agents or rub them vigorously.
Be proud of your G.DeBrekht art, share the product with your discerning [friends] and celebrate the triumph of beautiful artistry. Display it in a place of importance and it will repay you many times over."
