    The Museum Shop (Sklep Muzealny): Hand made wooden figures

    by matcrazy1 Written Jun 26, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    WOODEN  STATUES/FIGURES

    You can find a set of wooden figures/statues of people (man and women) made by local artists. Hmm... I have a few ones at my appartment but from another region of Poland.

    What to buy: Wooden statues/figures.

    What to pay: Generally prices are fixed but... try to get a discount if you buy more. These wooden figures on my pictures (about 30 cm, 1 feet tall) costed approx. 20-40 PLN (5-10 $/Euro before... discount :-) or more - depends on an artist. Expensive? I don't think.

    Various: Amber necklaces

    by matcrazy1 Written Jun 23, 2003

    AMBER  NECKLACES

    Baltic amber is fossil resin produced by pine trees which grew in Northern Europe about 50 million years ago. The resin was washed out of the forest floor by large rivers and transported south towards the sea. In the course of time the resin was transformed to amber due to processes of polymerisation and oxidation.

    Amber is used by many artists who create sometimes small pieces of art from it. You can choose among hundreds of various amber necklaces.
