Straw sculpture
The production of straw sculpture has deep roots in the traditional culture of many peoples of the world. Images of Horses, goats, birds, people have their origin in the beliefs of peoples in their divine power. Creating a straw image, a person invested in it his or her wants, needs and hopes for well-being, a good harvest, for getting rid of all sorts of misfortunes. Centuries have passed, and the power of this faith has weakened, but the tradition of making ancient images passed on to modern masters has remained.
