Like many colleagues in the guild, Viorel Marian is self-taught and learned his craft after going through various other jobs. As he confesses, wood carving brings him the most satisfaction, even now, after more than 20 years of practicing it.

The fir tree is a symbol of life and vital force. It is another representation of the myth of the Tree of Life, with a greater age in Romanian folk ornamentation than the other known patterns, with Iranian or Mediterranean origins. The tree was included in a whole series of documents related to the daily life and beliefs of the Romanians. It is the "wedding tree" and symbolizes the beginning of family life, it appears on the dowry chest, but it is also included in the funeral ritual as a symbol of eternity.

  • Cherry wood spoon
  • Carved by hand
  • 34 cm long
  • It can be used for cooking or serving food
  • It can be used for decorative purposes
  • The spoons are handmade, so they are unique and will not be identical to the ones in the photos. It is about small differences in the carved model, of course keeping the symbolic meaning, or about differences in the color and natural fiber of the wood. We consider these small differences part of their charm.
