Ethnographic Museum, Krakow

Model drewnianego domu z Bronowic krytego słomą.

A miniature house, a shed to the right and a toilet behind it. To the left, a barn from which one can also enter the house. Would you like to check whether there are any tiny tenants roaming somewhere inside? This is not a toy but one of the models displayed in the Museum. They were built to show what could not be transferred to the museum’s interiors: houses, shrines, entire workshops and individual tools. All of this to make their shapes, proportions, construction and operation visible to those who could not see the originals. The model you are standing in front of was made under the direction of Włodzimierz Tetmajer who was a painter, politician (in 1911, a member of the Austrian parliament for Polskie Stronnictwo Ludowe – the Polish People's Party – and later a co-founder of the PSL-Piast), a writer, and one of the enthusiasts who supported the establishment of the Ethnographic Museum in Krakow. Reduced to a portable size, the house recreates a real cottage from Bronowice Wielkie (currently a district of Krakow). Tetmajer selected a building that he must have known very well. The house belonged to Błażej Czepiec (1854-1934), a communal clerk from Bronowice and privately an uncle of Anna Mikołajczyk, Tetmajer’s wife.
