The exhibition „Horses“ deals with the horse as a motif traditionally found in our society for hundreds of years in numerous materials. It presents its changing shape from available historical documents through a period of creativity under the ÚĽUV brand all the way to its current depiction in design. A horse is a toy, a souvenir, interior furnishing, an interactive element in the world of children and adults. This exhibition has situated it in the historical context of traditional folk culture, via its symbolism and association with people´s work and the significant role it plays in the world of children.
