Devotional picture "Souvenir from Kobylanka"

Devotional picture "Souvenir from Kobylanka"

In a small pauper's cottage in the foothill village of Lipnica Wielka, designed as a village herbalist's house, one notices a row of holy paintings above the window and on the wall opposite the entrance. On the right side, slightly to the side, there is a small, oval picture. If you come closer, you can see that it is a black and white representation of a baroque altar with the image of the Crucifixion. At the bottom there is a rather difficult to read signature (original spelling): "A real appearance of Jesus / with the Altar in Kobyla [nce]". This small representation in a glass oval is therefore associated with the Kobyl sanctuary - perhaps it is a souvenir of a pilgrimage to this place of worship.

Picture painted on glass "Bobbers on the Dunajec"

Ethnographic Department

Rafting season is in full swing. The Dunajec River is as crowded as "Zakopiance", among the highlander boats - kayaks, rafting pontoons and SUP boards. It's not like it used to be, when you could only see colorful rafters on the fast-flowing Dunajec River. For over 200 years, rafting down the Dunajec River has been the biggest attraction of the Pieniny Mountains.

Cabbage barrel

Cabbage barrel

Ethnography Department

In the corner of the hall of the cottage from Gostwica in the Sądecki Ethnographic Park, there is a barrel of small size. Its height is almost 1 meter, while the upper diameter is 1.2 meters! Unfortunately, we will disappoint all listeners during relaxing baths. In the context of the reality of the 19th-century countryside, it follows that this is the largest barrel, and therefore a larger amount of water, which is a real waste! Can you imagine how much an analysis with water carriers for a nearby well or efficient stream would have to be calculated to count such a vessel? The described exhibit had a lot of practical use, especially for pickling cabbage.
