The museum lecture this week is peeping into the old chests, where the girls held their most precious accessories. It is dedicated to the chaprases - exquisitely decorated plates on a women's belt, also called "pafti", "pahti", "pufti", "pelti". They are an important part of the traditional costume of the Bulgarian woman and fasten the look to the exquisite waist. Different in shape, size, way of making, material, the "patfi" carry a rich symbolism, and the images on them are a reflection of folk concepts and beliefs.
On November 10, 2018, at 11.30 h. at the Natural History Museum of Burgas (30, K. Fotinov Str.) you will learn more about the traditional jewellery stored in the local ethnographic museum and what is the connection between the phrase "Divan chapaz" and the "chaprazi" itself. Lecturer is Rositsa Topalova, curator of the Ethnography Department.
The entrance fee is preferential - for adults 2 BGN and for students and pensioners - 1 BGN.
