Collection(s)Documented in the year 1408 under the name Aklos, Ocolis is famous for its folk garb and ancient customs. The ethnographic exhibition attempts to recreate the traditional house specific to this area with furniture which could be found inside a room: table with tablecloth, chairs, chest of drawers, sideboard, crib and dowry chest. Different objects were placed on top of these: wooden pails with water, earthen mugs, bowls, wooden spoons; icons and decorative scarves hung from the wall. The oil lamp hung from the cross beam and was lit in the evening; at night a rushlight was used in case one had to go into the yard. The floors were protected with woven cloth. Wooden vessels were used to make bread and process milk. The dough and bread were made using a pan, a small wooden trough and a wooden shovel. The processing of milk used a pail, a trough, a large spoon, some rope and a wheelbarrow for transportation. The smaller pail was used to transport water and the cutting board held the cornbread which was cut with a long piece of thread attached to the board. The objects used for hemp processing (crusher, combs, reed, carder, reel, spindle) and wool processing (combs, distaffs, etc.) are well represented. Folk costumes representative of the entire area of Mocănimii Ariesului hold an important place within the exhibition.
