311. The Kurent's Room

Belief, The Land of Carnival Customs. Double-bed.

In the vicinity of Ptuj, a huge number of traditional carnival characters have been preserved; the most eminent and famous among them, however, is the Kurent. Dressed in sheepskin, girded with heavy bells, covered with a colorful hat and armed with a club, the Kurent is an invincible deity that successfully banishes winter and any evil forces, summons spring and brings about fertility. The homeland of the Kurent is the Ptujsko polje field, but the tradition also survives on the Drava plain and in Haloze. Today, his "cousins" are being discovered all the way to Sardinia and Bulgaria.
