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.
In popular tradition, the rooster is meant to ward off evil spirits. They disappear with the dawn and the crowing of the rooster.
He behaves like a watchmaker of the villagers, dividing the day and the night, being the only one who sees the night when the sky opens and hears the thunder in the sky. It is considered a bird of Nazareth and full of grace, stronger and cleaner than the other living creatures.
The rooster guards the boundary between light and darkness, good and evil, life and death

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.
