Heritage

With Heritage Days rolling into Faribault, it seemed like a good time to share a part of my own heritage.

I am German, Irish, Polish, and Norwegian. On a recent trip to visit some family members, I saw a wallhanging featuring the Norwegian folk art of Rosemaling and snapped a picture. Rosemaling is decorative painting, typically on wood, and uses flower ornamentation, scroll work and flowing lines to create intricate and lovely designs. I have often seen pieces with rosemaling on display in homes, but I didnt know unti today that it got it’s start around 1750 and remained popular until the 1860s. In addition to Norway, rosemaling is also found in Sweden, although often called by another name there. Rosemaling had a resurgance in the US shortly after the Great Depression.
