Dalarna Horse of Sweden
This is a photo of my Dalarna Horse, which I acquired when I first visited Sweden in 1969. I ended up returning to Sweden and staying until 1972. The Dalarna Horse is the national icon of Sweden. It is a small, carved red wooden horse brightly painted with flowers. The horse (often called dalahorse) began as a small craft item in Dalarna, a picturesque district of Sweden, but the horse has become the symbol for all that is Swedish. This little colorful wood carving from Sweden always brings back happy memories for me of that beautiful land, Sweden. INFORMATION ON THE DALARNA HORSE: A Dalecarlian horse or Dala horse (Swedish: Dalahast) is a traditional wooden statuette of a horse originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna. In the older days the dala horse was mostly a toy for children, but nowadays it is used as a symbol for Dalarna or sometimes the whole of Sweden. Traditionally a dala horse is painted bright red with details and a harness in white, green, yellow and blue. It may also be painted bright blue or, in the Rattvik area, grey. The distinctive shape of the horse is due to flat-plane carving. The horses were originally made of the scrap wood from the clock case industry in the Dalarna region. It was in the small log cabins deep in the forests during the long winter nights in front of a log fire that the forerunner of the dala horse was born. Using simple tools, generally only a knife, woodcarvers made toys for their children. It was only natural that many of these toys were horses, because the horse was invaluable in those days -- a trusty friend and worker who could pull great loads of timber from the forests during the winter months, and in the summer could be of just as much use on the farm. The Dalecarlian horse is said by some to be a model of Odin's horse Sleipnir, but unlike Sleipnir it does not have eight legs. Another apocryphal legend of the Dala horse is that they became the national toy in 1716. According to the legend soldiers loyal to King Charles XII were quartered in the Dalarna region and carved the toys as gifts for their hosts. The earliest references to wooden horses for sale are from 1623 -- nearly 400 years ago. The pattern of today is about 150 years old, and it reflects a style of painting known as kurbits. In the 19th century, Sticka-Erik Hansson from Mora introduced the technique of painting with two colours on the same brush, still used today. The Dalecarlian horse of today is still a handcrafted article, made of pine. At least nine different people contribute their skills to create each horse. The carving of Dala horses is thought to have started in the village of Bergkarlas, though the nearby "horse" villages of Risa, Vattnas and Nusnas were also centres of horse making. The villages were involved in the art of furniture and clock-making, and it is likely the leftover scraps of wood were at first whittled into toy horses for children as a winter pastime. But the art of carving and painting the small horses quickly flourished in the 1800s, as economic hardship in the region inspired greater production of the little horses, and they became an important item of barter. Horse-making may have started as something to while away the hours during the long winter months but soon the Dala horses were traded in exchange for household goods and their carving and painting blossomed into a full-fledged cottage industry. The rural families depended on horse production to help keep food on the table, as the skills of horse carving and painting were passed from one generation to the next. The decoration on the Dala horse (the first horses were not painted or were only one colour) has its roots in furniture painting and was perfected over the years. Perhaps the most famous decorator was Mora artist Stika Erik Hansson from Risa, the first of the horse painters to paint with two colours on the brush at one time. There were the horse whittlers and there were the horse painters - and it was considered a great honor for a whittler to have his horse painted by a renowned painter such as Stika Erik! (Interestingly, in the book "The Wooden Horses of Sweden," the author discovered that this famous Dala painter is buried in a small churchyard in Nebraska after having immigrated to the Midwest in 1887 at the age of 64.) Stika Erik's method of using 2 colours at one time with a very fine brush is still used today. Grannas A. Olssons Hemslojd AB, founded in 1922, is the oldest company which still makes Dalecarlian horses. Nils Olssons Hemslojd is almost as old. Today most horses are made in Nusnas, a little village outside Mora. The wood from which the figures are carved comes from the slow-growing pine forest around Lake Siljan. The wood is ideal for carpentry and carving. The trees to be made into horses are marked out while still standing in the forest. Only the best timber will be selected for carving into horses. The trees are felled and sawed into pieces of
