Konjic woodcarving is an artistic craft with a long tradition. The woodcarvings which include furniture, sophisticated interiors and small decorative objects stand out for their recognizable hand-carved motifs and overall visual identity. The woodcarving is a constitutive part of the local communitys culture, a measure of the beauty and amenity of home interiors, and a tradition that forges a sense of community and belonging. The practice not only plays a very important role at the community level in Konjic, however, but also countrywide and in diaspora communities.
It is an economically viable, socially inclusive and ecologically sustainable craft practiced by different ethnic and confessional groups, which serves as an instrument of dialogue and cooperation. The craft is widespread among Konjic inhabitants, both as an occupation and as a hobby, and while the main bearers are trained craftspeople who work in woodcarving workshops, bearers who practise the craft at home are equally important. The owners of family-run woodcarving workshops are most responsible for safeguarding the element, training apprentice woodcarvers and popularizing the craft.Knowledge and skills are transmitted primarily through on-the-job training of novices in the practicing workshops, as well as through inter generational transmission within the family. A special technique in woodcarving, called the Giyography , was created 30 years ago and was designed by a man who was born and lives in Konjic, artist Samir Gijo. Since childhood, Gijo has had a highly developed sense of art. Gijo´s artistic skills are uncommon and rare which makes your house special and unique.
