    History of Box-Making in Poland

    The making of decorated wooden boxes has deep historical roots in southern Poland. Farmers and shepherds settled the Tatra region of the Carpathian mountains, a region called Podhale, toward the end of the first millennium AD. During the long winter months, as their fields lay under cover of snow, farmers spent their free time working wood. Every member of the family participated in decoration. The first products of this community were objects of everyday use: wooden houses, furniture, coat hangers, spoons, and large chests to store clothes and bedding. The oldest tradition preserved the white color of wood, ornamented with small carved triangles, circles, lines, mountain flowers and rosettes. Colored stains, originally brown and green, added a new dimension to the designs. Surface preservation techniques such as waxing and oiling were developed in local workshops.

    Wooden objects were bartered between local families, and in the course of time some artists achieved prominence, earning them nicknames that were recorded for posterity. The most popular artisans specialized in carving wooden figures of Jesus, the Virgin Mary and saints. These figures were used to protect fields, roads and houses. A visitor to the Polish countryside can still find them today.

    Ornamented dowry chests were another popular product of this tradition. A bride's dowry consisted of a variety of household objects given to her along with a large wooden chest decorated with traditional symbols of love and prosperity - birds, flowers and hearts. After marriage, families used these chests to hold their most precious belongings - money, jewelry, and important papers. A metal lock or secret opening mechanism was often added to protect the contents from children and strangers.

    In the academies many books, at the circus many sacks of peanuts, at the club rooms many cigar butts.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Re: box on the pole

    I found this post today once it was relocated.
    A very interesting post.
    I'm thinking its scientific
    Very odd that the local law enforcement agency wouldn't investigate it.
    Possible radar detector of sorts to detect movement, or a camera that covers the area?

    Perhaps this is a different type of time capsule that was devised so as not to forget where it was left.
