On March 21, the exhibition "Tales in Peasant Household Items" will open at the Estate of the Kolomna Peasant. The exposition presents items from the collection of the Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve.
“Often in folk tales that take us into the world of the unknown, we come across words whose meaning we have ceased to understand over time. Children, and many adults, will not be able to tell what a grip is, what a spindle looks like, what a mortar was used for… At the exhibition, you can see all these items, find out what they were used for and in which fairy tales they were mentioned. The exposition will be an excellent opportunity to re-read the works familiar from childhood and see with your own eyes what they are talking about,” said Olga Vorobyeva, curator of the exhibition.
The daily life of a peasant was permeated with a fabulous atmosphere: visitors to the Kolomna Peasant’s Manor will be able to find out who a brownie is and how it differs from a yard, why mermaids were considered the shores of a dwelling, how to recognize a goblin and where to look for a merman.
The exposition features a carved board with the image of a mermaid, which once guarded the inhabitants of a house in the Nizhny Novgorod province. Next to her is a yarn comb, because in folklore these river deities were often depicted combing their loose hair with a comb. The grip and the towel will remind you of the fairy tale "Animal Milk", in which the Serpent Gorynych turns into a grip, and Ivan Tsarevich turns the towel into a bridge across the river. The spinning wheel and the spindle will remind you of the plot of the fairy tale “The Feather of Finist Yasna Falcon”, where the red maiden goes to the thirtieth kingdom in search of her fiancé. And the fairy tale "Vasilisa the Beautiful" will introduce you to the "transport" of Baba Yaga.
The estate of a Kolomna peasant is located on Bolshaya Street and is part of the ethnographic complex of the Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve. The building was recreated according to the surviving archival documents and drawings of a real house. Kolomna peasants were mainly engaged in gardening and even brought out a special kind of cabbage - "kolomenka". There is a garden next to the house, chickens, a cow and a horse live in the estate. Kolomna peasants were considered prosperous, so in the interior exposition you can see items fashionable for the end of the 19th century: a gramophone, a watch, a Singer sewing machine. Going down to the basement, you can get acquainted with the tools that the peasants used to work in the garden, and how they stored the harvest, as well as visit the village shop.
