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 owl is an archaic symbol of traditional Romanian culture, inherited from the Geto-Dacians. It is considered the symbol of wisdom. From a spiritual point of view, the owl sees beyond the power of our eyes, that is, into the darkness of ignorance.
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.
