‘Meeting the mayor, the teacher and the priest’

A touching wink to the traditions

On 12 May from 6 PM in Dali art centre in Plovdiv the exhibition of knitted puppets made by Svetla Hristova will be opened.

The 52 years old artist has given the name to the exhibition ‘Meeting the mayor, the teacher and the priest’. This is a hobby for Svetla Hristova. Her inspiration comes from her children and her grandson. All puppets are knitted or weaved with a lot of desire and love and represent Bulgarians’ favorite fairy tale heroes.

The message that the artist leaves is a hint and a light reminder of the past.

The exhibition will last until 30 May 2008.
