DOZYNKI HARVEST FESTIVAL 2008 


© by Wydawnictwo Sztuka Warszawa 1956
The weaving of the harvest wreath (called the "crop") and a procession taking the wreath to the festival host (the squire, the best farmer in the village, priest, village administrator, district or province governor or even the president of Poland). This was the most distinctive, solemn and spectacular part of the harvest festival.
