Before and during the interwar period, only the nobility, those with historic and social status were privileged to own these gates. The gates were consided to have a cultural role.
Traditional wooden gates are often found at the entrance to towns and other public domains.
The original gates are structured with three pillars used as support for two entrances and a horizontal upper pillar with shingle roofing cover. The gate has a narrow entrance and a wide gate for large vehicles, farm equipment, loads of hay, horses and oxen.
The details in the design are grand, featuring geometric, zoomorphic, antropomorphic motifs, of which the most commonly found is the rope.
Using wood from local oak trees, craftsman has skillfully carved a wide range of traditional wooden gates, house entrances, columns and verandas. His family have been carrying on this tradition, something many people forget today.
A gate measures about 10 ft tall and the depth of a rope carving is about 2’’. The wood is cut in winter, when it is the driest, then peeled and dried. It is cut at the sawmill.
