I giocattoli dello Zagorjie

Culturalmente Imparando

Zagorjie's wooden toys are very recognizable and have a history dating back to the 19th century. There are different types of toys, including wooden flutes and animals, cars and airplanes. The techniques are handed down from generation to generation, with the division of labor between men and women, in which the former deals with sculpting and the latter with decorating. Each of these toys is a unique work: the wood is dried, worked and formed through molds. The decorations are made in blue, red, yellow and white and are often sold for ecclesiastical holidays, fairs and markets.
