Citation:  Dallas Museum of Art. The Rachovsky Collection.
Index Words:  square-hay-bale, abstract
Place:  
Notes:  Seen at the Dallas Museum of Art, January 2007. Here is the excellent museum caption: A single tube of fluoresecent light juts skyward out of several bales of hay, emphasizing an incongruous coupling of industrial and natural materials. Despite the strangeness of the combination, relationships between the two forms can be drawn. Both the hay and the light will cease to exist -- the hay will deteriorate and the light will burn out. Similarly, both are related to energy. Hay is a source of energy for animals, and the neon light uses an energy source.

Index Words:  scythe, mowing, woman, festival, tourism
Place:  Romania
Notes:  Emailed to me by Caroline Juler who paraphrased the Romanian article about, in her words, a new 'tradition' which has been founded in the village of Mesteacan (Birch Tree) in Tara Chioarului, the Maramures 'land' which also contains Surdesti. There, a retired colonel has instituted an annual competition to choose the strongest and most talented female hay-maker, poet and pancake-cook. As far as I understand it, the competition was founded in 1997 and is held on Fairies' Day (Sanziene) but I don't know if that is an ancient festival or not. The article dates from 2000 and I hope the competition it's still going! Anyhow you might enjoy the photos of the winning Amazon, edition of 2000!

Citation:  
Index Words:  scythe, mowing, woman, festival, tourism
Place:  Romania
Notes:  I forwarded the article to Anamaria Iuga who does research in hay folklore in the same region. She replied: Mesteacan is a village south Baia Mare, on the way towards Cluj-Napoca. There is a festival there on the 24th June, the Mid Summer Day. It is a new festival, from 1997, but the article does not mention whether it is still going on. The women come to the festival and there is a contest who makes the best cakes and who can cut the grass faster. It is a new tradition it sounds like other festivals that I have heard about in the Podhale region, in Poland.

Notes:  Ana Iuga used the phrase 'new tradition' ironically. Another irony is that scything is an activity almost always traditionally handled by men.

Notes:  The on-line discussion of this painting uncovered its anachronism and in passing deprecated our own site! Hay in art (http://www.hayinart.com/2004_03.html ) was good, but not informative enough. http://www.arthistoryclub.com/art_hi...er#Round_baler then provided the trivia game answer I was looking for: Quote: The round baler was invented in 1971 by the Vermeer Company, which as of 2004 continues to produce them.
