Polish Artists Recreate Traditional Slavic Wreaths To Preserve The Tradition

Published 4 months ago

It scares me to think, how much awesome stuff has been lost to history already, but thanks to photographer Ula Kóska and makeup artist Beata Bojda, one more of these beautiful things will be preserved for longer.

The Polish artists collaborated on a project where a couple of models were dressed in traditional Slavic attires, including these incredible head wreaths – an iconic part of Slavic folklore. Back in the day women wore them during religious and secular ceremonies such as marriage, funeral, festivals and one on the most important annual celebrations – Easter.

These impressive headdresses are made out of paper by twisting it tightly into flower shapes – a traditional method of creating such wreaths in Poland.
