Bulgarian church woodcarving, 14th-19th century – album book 2000
Hardcover: 137 pages.
The book presents in general development of Bulgarian Church woodcarving from the earliest preserved models until the end of the 19th century. The presentation follows the main routes of development of this original art, with emphasis laid upon the symbolism of the included patterns. During the Revival period this symbolism is a synthesis between Christian and Pre-Christian patterns, preserved in the folklore thinking. The book presents the Revival period not only as an ascending period but also as a period of recesses and returns kept up by the folklore. The book is intended mainly for ethnographers, folklorists, art historians and for all those fascinated by the magic of woodcarving.
