"Paulikka" - carved calendar
Arkhangelsk province, Kem district, village
Second half of the 19th century
This is a wooden square wooden block it is tapering towards one of its ends. A fragment with four months has been preserved, respectively one month on each side - March, June, September, December. On each face there are notches according to the number of days in a month; holidays are marked with crosses, crosses in a circle, straight lines and other graphic signs (total signs - 33). The beginning of the year according to this calendar falls on March, it is probably copied from an earlier sample because around December a curly notch was made, indicating the beginning of the year in January, which should be on this edge. To use the calendar, it was rotated counterclockwise. Abstract by O.G. Baranova
