The Story of the Dala Horse | World Heritage Journeys of Europe

During the 19th century, it became custom to paint the wooden horses with richly coloured floral patterns, similar to the Dalecarlian paintings that decorated furniture and interior walls. Those who travelled around the country to sell products of the cottage industry—like baskets, grindstones, and wooden casks—added the Dala horses to their selection of goods.
