Here are a few old and new gates in Maramures.The tradition of building wooden gates in Maramures remained intact since Dacia(the romanian territory inhabited by Thracians near 2000 years ago).Decorated with various motifs they had many meanings wich are too hard to explain in a few words.Enjoy!

I had to look up Maramures – had no clue where it was.

Great intricate motifs and carvings – thx for sharing

I’m sorry they are not my creations, but as part of my culture i don’t resisted to not post them.

It has everything she wishes”-in the last one.
During old times the rearing animals and earth work were the main concerns of my people and nothing material mattered,mother nature was doing things for themselves.
