tale of an angel
From the project: “Dream Visions of the Past.”
The project “Dream Visions of the Past” is the result of the joint effort by Iva Lulic and Donja Kupčina’s Ethnographic Museum. A series of photographs taken in the Ethnographic Museum evokes memories of rural people's everyday life. In her photos, the author brings us the past and represents it as a dream vision in which reality blends with a dream. A number of folk beliefs and folk tales are still preserved in the memories of Donja Kupčina’s residents. One of the stories is about an angel with a towel and washbowl that follows those children who have forgotten to wash their face in the morning. At noon when the bell rings, the angel pours out the water. This story teaches children to wash their face in the morning. Children from Donja Kupcina have played a role in creating these photos.
