Rupert Nativity - Lepi
born on 25th March 1908 in Patsch in Tyrol,
is one of the most famous masters under the nativity artists. As a toddler, he
tried to carve his first nativity animals. After his elementary school
graduation, Rupert Reindl came to Romed Speckbacher laboratory in Thaur, which
was one of the leading wood carvers of his time. For almost 20 years he worked
in the woodcarving laboratory Speckbacher and carved during these years
thousands of nativity figurines. After the war, Rupert joined the Stettnerhof
in Igls, near Innsbruck.
Later he started worked at home, where he spend the whole day in front of his
workbench. Nativities, Madonnas and many other wood carvings created in his own
workshop were sent into the wide world. On September 8th 1990, the
nativity artist died in Igls. The Rupert master pieces are still recognized as
a landmark in the entire Christmas nativity scene.
