Collection(s)Set up in the historic building of 18th century Bethlen castle, the ethnographic exhibition stores objects that highlight the main traditional occupations - agriculture, husbandry and viticulture - and crafts - blacksmithing, coopering, carpentry, masonry and weaving. The exhibition depicts a cottage with the entrance in the middle of the hallway, with a room on either side of it. Here we find the hearth and the bread oven. The horn for the oven was wide, crossing the roof, serving as a smokehouse as well. The house walls and the ceilings of the living quarters were made of wooden beams and unshaped stakes. The traditional folk costume of Cut, through its appearance, lines, decoration and color is representative of the entire area of the Secas valley, resembling the so-called "Sălişte suit." The woman's costume consists of the following parts: undershirt, petticoats (“poale”), vest, ornate skirts, apron and as headgear the “chişchinău” - a headscarf of varying color according to age. Slippers or boots were worn on the feet. The long winter overcoat, reaching over the knee, completed the costume. A white kerchief wrapped around the head, also called a “propoada” , was customary for a woman’s costume. Girls covered their heads with black scarves, with red feathers and green slippers. In winter they wore long woolen knee socks (cioci). The man's costume consists of the following main parts: knee-length shirt, made of hemp, flax or cotton; instead of pants, they wore woolen or linen tapered trousers toped with a black leather girdle; lambskin vest worn over the shirt, or overcoat made of black cloth. In addition to folk garb, women wove carpets on the loom. The needlepoint or woven finery is a thing of beauty. The wool rugs are different from the carpets because they lack the decoration. Tablecloths are woven together with the carpets and they differ only in size since the cloth and the decoration is the same. Pieces of hemp and cotton cloth are woven with two or more threads over a white background. The earthen mugs and large cups are shorter, with a taller neck, fitted with a spout for draining the liquid. Pitchers, also known as cups, alternating between a spherical and oval profile, have a very narrow neck, a small rim and a single round handle which communicates with the bottom through a channel.
