*Pajaki (translates as spider) are traditional Polish ornaments which have decorated the ceilings of peasant cottages for centuries. Crafted from straw, colourful paper, wool, beans or feathers, Pajaki would be made from scratch each year to decorate homes for Christmas and Easter. They were hung throughout the home, above the table, bed or in household shrines. Resembling spiders' webs, they symbolise power and protection from evil spirits and natural disasters, and promise an abundance of harvests and happiness.
