And here's a little bit about who the bird of happiness is :)
The main place of origin is considered to be the Arkhangelsk province, the white sea regions of the Republic of Karelia. In the 60s of the XX century,the art of making was almost lost.
The bird of happiness was hung in the house as a talisman, guardian of the hearth and well-being. According to legend, a bird that hung in the house for a year was burned in the oven on New year's eve, a kind of farewell to the old year and the events that were in it. Well, at the beginning of the year, they cut a new bird, "clean", ready for new events in the family of sailors.
According to the description of the famous researcher of Russian Ethnography Sergey Maksimov, in the XIX century, a woodchip bird suspended from the ceiling was an indispensable attribute of the house of sailors. He mentions that such doves were made by the Pomor old believers in their monasteries, as well as by Murmansk Industrialists.
The bird was suspended from the ceiling in the front, "red" corner of the village room, where a table with benches was located. When a boiling samovar was placed on it, the carved bird, obeying the currents of hot air, slowly and solemnly rotated around its axis... It was made with great care and radiated goodness.
The Golden texture of the pine shingles perfectly matched the red and black strokes. This combination of colors gave things a special "Mezen" flavor. By the name of the river Mezen, which flows in those places. In a relatively short time, the production of wooden "birds of happiness" was mastered by artisans in many regions of Russia.
