About the Model

This is children's toy made out of wood without nails or glue. The flat, simplified horse form is placed on a plank with wheels. There is a tiny hole intended for a string for the child to pull the toy. Thanks to their unique form, these flat horses, with their interesting profiles, stand out among other European folk toys. This toy was made in Yavoriv, a town in western Ukraine near the Polish border. Medium: wood, paint
