naive (folk) art in Biskupice

We visited my husband´s parents during Christmas, and while we stayed at their place, we made several trips to interesting places. One of them was this spectacular house in a village called Biskupice, with garden filled with statues. They are made of concrete and painted, and they were created by a lady who lived in the house (and died few years ago). She was a village woman, not a real artist, but I think what she did is so great. Much better than what many "real" professional artists do :). There are many statues of people and animals, but also the whole house and its surroundings are painted, almost every bit of wall. There are also big statues of animals on the roof. I was in awe of this, such a joy of life and creating things. I love things like this.


  1. This is so wonderful! I don't know if I'll ever make it to Europe, so, thanks for sharing!

  2. I´m glad you like it! Even if you went to Europe, you probably coudn´ t find this, it´s pretty much hidden from the world... my husband was there some years ago and he had trouble find it too :).

  3. It's so great, even in this dreary winter we have!
