San Pedro Calungsod Statue Wood Carving in Paete, Laguna
This is the information of devoted Catholics looking for images, statues of San Pedro Calungsod in Paete, Laguna (Tutubi's hometown).
The Society of Jesus (SJ), commonly known as Jesuits commissioned Paete master wood carver Justino Cagayat, Jr. (Paloy) to carve the official statue of Pedro Calungsod for his canonization.
The price of Pedro Calungsod statues is mostly based on length measurements and material used and ranges from eight inches (worth PhP350.00) to four-feet tall (cost of PhP4,000.00), made of either resin or wood.
Resin images and statues are cheaper since they're made from moulds unlike wood and also if they're natural wood finish, varnish or colored paint complete with encarna false hair, eyes, eyebrows and eye lashes.
Paloy Cagayat's wood carving shop is on J.V. Quesada St, the main road of Paete leading to the town plaza and Paete Church where most wood carving shops, souvenir stores and handcrafts retailers are. You can inquire there to look for wholesale contacts and prices. religious images in Tayuman, Manila and Quiapo are usually made in Paete if not from Betis Guagua Pampanga.
will post contact details, telephone numbers, email address and official websites of wood carvers and wood carving shops once available.
