Kraków’s bed made from soft wood has signature 1 in the collection of the Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum in Kraków. It was the first object, which started museum’s collection.
What feelings, associations, and emotions do they evoke today? Here, mundane everyday objects can be found, so common that they are almost imperceptible, and things that transport us to another reality: the reality of the theatre, fun, holidays and the sacred. Specimens brought from distant parts of the world and seized fragments of everyday life.
Each object is a starting point for a story. A story about the courage of imagination, scientific passions, travels, discoveries, distant expeditions... About war wanderings, exile, forced emigration... About social uprisings, the fashions popular at elite salons, fascination with art and the forms of unique and common things. About overcoming weaknesses, facing adversity, and providing assistance, as well as about philanthropy and efforts to change the harsh reality. About curiosity for the world, exploring its diversity, inspiring meetings which open new horizons, and concern for the preservation of various testimonies of our lives.
It is probably a good beginning of the story about the establishment of the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków...
