Decoratively Carved Wooden Beams

The significance of decoratively carved wooden beams

This type of capentry work has a long-standing quality tradition in the Alpine region which dates back over centuries. The living and working buildings in the Alpine region were once made using carved tree trunks. The joints were carefully carved to ensure the solid structure of the building. These joints were artistically carved and decorated with pre-Christian and Christian symbols - they are called "Schrotköpfe".

Examples:

  • The animal heads on the house and balcony ridges are pre-Christian symbols for fending off evil spirits. The symbols aim to keep evil far away from the house.
  • Christian symobls such as the cross (for belief) and the heart (for love) also began to enter into the artwork.
  • The tools of the carpenter and miner were deemed to be an expression of self-confidence and served to identify the craftsman in question.

Schrotköpfe aus Holz

Elke Riedlsperger vom Kreativ Laden in Leogang hat sich diese Schrotköpfe zur Vorlage genommen & damit kleine "Handschmeichler" aus Holz gefertigt.

Handschmeichler sind Gegenstände, die keine konkrete Funktion haben. Sie passen von der Größe her genau in die Hand & sind durch die glatte Oberfläche angenehm zu berühren. Sie dienen zur Entspannung & besseren Stimmung.

Sie können diese Schrotköpfe in beiden Tourismusbüros, sowie im Kreativ Laden Leogang zum Preis von € 8,90 kaufen.
