Before and during the
interwar period, only the nobility, those with historic and social status were
privileged to own these gates. The gates were consided to have a cultural role.
Traditional wooden gates are often found at the entrance to towns and other
The original gates are structured with three pillars
used as support for two entrances and a horizontal upper pillar with shingle roofing cover. The gate has a narrow entrance and a wide gate for large vehicles,
farm equipment, loads of hay, horses and oxen.
The details in the design are grand, featuring geometric, zoomorphic,
antropomorphic motifs, of which the most commonly found is the rope.
Using wood from local oak trees, craftsman has skillfully carved a wide
range of traditional wooden gates, house entrances, columns and verandas. His
family have been carrying on this tradition, something many people forget
A gate measures about 10 ft tall and the depth of a rope carving is
about 2’’. The wood is cut in winter, when it is the driest, then peeled and
dried. It is cut at the sawmill.
