Himmeli

2011/12/19


Himmeli is a traditional Finnish Christmas ornament made of short strips of straw tied together with strings to form a complex three-dimensional structure. The used to hang them above the dining table to ensure that the coming rye crop would be plentiful. I wouldn’t mind one of these beauties hanging around all year.
