Asking for Protection April 10, 2010

Filed under: Religious traditions — ivasil @ 10:20 pm

These crosses are traditionally placed in important places such as in the crossroads, in the fields or by the fountains, as a request for the divine protection related to the activities that take place there. These ones are from an open air museum in Sibiu, except for the last one, which actually was in a field nearby. I like them very much, I hope you will too.
