Bundle includes the traditional headdress box, photos, instructions and patterns to do the piece shown.  Wood dimensions are approximately 12" x 8" x 9".

Here we have the wonderful example of Per A. Arhus (b, 1758) from Kvam, Steinsdalen to guide our studies, a farmer from the Hardanger area. He evolved his style mainly on small trunks. It is interesting to note that this box was also used and decorated through the Southwestern area of Dalarna, Sweden around Lima, which is just East of Elverum, Norway.
