Exhibition opening and film screening JOŽEFA HUMAR – DEBEVČEVA ZEFA

Coordinator: Janja Železnikar, MMK; Author: Andreja Humar Gruden

Jožefa Humar – Debevčeva Zefa cultivated, preserved and enriched the cultural heritage of the area of the Velika, Mala and Gojška planina and thus the entire Slovenian area. With a refined artistic sense and great spiritual wealth, she always drew new ideas for her creations from her admiration of nature, which were rooted in the traditions of her ancestors and enhanced by her imagination. She realized them in the carving of fonts for thorns, sprinklers, door handles, as well as in the design of the crucified Christ, decorations for household utensils, various figurines, drawing pirches, writing poems and notes, in short, in all her work.
