Irrational Times

“When we study records of a distant past, the borderlines between cultures are obliterated and the world appears to us as a place of interdependencies and mutual inspirations. Traces of cultural impact can be found in myths and artifacts preserved in archaeological or ethnographic museums. Since time immemorial our ancestors who lived in what is now Poland and Sweden traded with each other and in this way exchanged artifacts. It is easy to indicate common motifs in folklore as well as similar or actually the same techniques used in everyday objects or decorative motifs.”
