Paintings from the chest
The peasant chests had the most luxurious painting in Gorenjska, where the oldest preserved peasant chest bears the venerable year 1624 and is exhibited in the Town Hall in Kranj. The motifs of the paintings were very different, flowers in goblets with or without handles and flower bouquets in baskets were especially popular. Some flowers are recognizable as roses or carnations, lilies of the valley, lilies or tulips. Saints/saints, who were usually personally connected to the owners and family members and represented their protectors (patrons), were also a common motif. A widespread and popular motif was Saint Florjan, the patron saint against fires; Saint Barbara and Saint George on a white horse killing a dragon with a spear. Just like the chests, the paintings from the chests are disappearing today and can be classified as endangered intangible cultural heritage.
