Beautiful vintage hand carved & painted Slavic wooden spoon.
“As self-contained compositions of matter and in their positioning within our culture, objects are innately ritualistic. Through function they are active, and support our pursuit of equilibrium. We hold them, come into contact with them, and become invested in them corporeally. Through our choosing to own or use them, objects gain deliberateness. And they remind us of our convictions when we are attentive to the myths they represent.” – Louise Schenk
“To eat by spoonful” in Slavic folklore refers to one having plenty of something. Indeed, way before other silverware even appeared in Slavic countries, a spoon already had its firm place as a household and table utensil, as well as an amulet against hunger.
Perfect for mixing incense, or using ritually.
