This small and cute himmeli decoration piece will bring timeless Christmas beauty into any home. A himmeli is a traditional decoration made of straw. The geometrical structure combined with the slight movement resulting from air flow in a room gives them a magical hint. Handmade with dedication and soul by the skilful himmelist Eija Koski in Finland. If needed to clean, dust gently.
“The quiet motion of a himmeli speaks to me in a language of mathematical beauty. A himmeli is like the Kalevala; it holds within it secrets if only one knows how to open its door. When I make a himmeli, each straw has its place. Every corner is in place. Everything has an order. In making a himmeli, I think that so it is in my life as well. Everything has a meaning. Every event has its meaning. Nothing is a coincidence. And finally the angles are aligned. That thought is very liberating to me. It feels as though I am a component of a universal law and order. Everything has pre-agreed lines and encounters.”
