Souvenirs from the Sitarjevec Mine

Lead castings

Lead castings

The reception of the mine offers a wide range of products made of lead castings. In the days around the New Year, divination by pouring molten lead (or wax) into cold water has been common in Slovenia since the middle of the 20th century. This tradition is part of the rich Slovenian tradition, customs and habits that originate from pagan religious and secular rites. They usually cast three castings, for the past, present, and future from which they then prophesied.
