I wanted to explore the Romanian folklore and the symbols found on its national costume; as a result I designed this calendar. It is thought that these symbols bring luck to those who wear them; they talk about the geographical area in which they were made and about the inhabitants crafts.
The calendar contains motifs from all over the country, which I have combined and/or adjusted in my own artistic sense. The symbols and colors used for each month are appropriate for the season that the month is in. Seasons are found under the month name and can each be identified by its specific icon. The icons were designed in the same traditional style as the illustrations. Bellow the official name of the month you can find the traditional month name.
