Carved wooden Birds of Happiness or Pomor Doves were created by masters of the Arkhangelsk region in the XIX century. For Pomor culture, such a bird was a mandatory decoration of the house — it was hanged to the ceiling in the best place of the room. The dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit, hope, and peace. And today such a souvenir is not only a beautiful example of folk culture but also a symbol of good wishes to the house where the bird of happiness will arrive.
Birds of happiness are made of thin wooden planks, bent in a special way and connected by threads. Some masters leave the wood unpainted to show its natural structure. Others prefer to paint their birds with bright colors. In our webstore, you can buy a bird of happiness in different variations.
