Collection(s)Paul Buţa from the village of Rai (Murgeni commune, Vaslui County) lived for as long period in Tecuci. There, in the eighties, studying culture discovered with surprise that experts consider that Galaţi area has no specific ethnography. Through his research as avid amateur, later supported by higher education in ethnology, Paul Buţa has refuted this view, rediscovering first funeral masks, and dancing and old habits, in short, a whole culture. After 1990, settled in Galaţi, he made folk masks, exhibited at home and abroad. Paul Buţa has designed a museum as a "traditional functional households" in which school children can spend time in the world "without electricity" before 1950, with a mentality and a civilization so different from today. For this restored old adobe house with two rooms on the "hall", and covered with reeds in traditional technique, known in the village by only two old men, he exhibited objects typical to old interiors. The stables held workshops: pottery, woodwork, a loom and a reed mats. He built a bread oven to cook in the local style, and from an old acacia made a crucifix. Paul Buţa organizes traditional dance classes and made masks for the children of the village and summer camps for children in the city, eager to weave, to mold clay, paint and learn how their great grandparents lived. A basement covered with clay and grass in the back yard, a fountain, trees and layers of flowers and vegetables in the yard completes the household.
