Dalkulla


Dalkulla By Zorn ?

I have been working on some more typical Swedish terrain, this time a "Dalkulla".

Now a short lesson in Swedish for dummies: Dalkulla, Dal=Dalarna (The Region Dalecarlia), Kulla=unmarried girl (the word are used in Dalecarlian dialect), so Dalkulla mean unmarried girl from the region Dalarna in Sweden,  simple as that;)

BUT  it is also the Nickname for the small utility stations that could be found around Dalarna and also in the surounding regions.



Here are a picture of a "Dalkulla" that are standing in my home village, it was in use in to the 1980´s unfortunally it isn´t taken care of.

And below are some pictures of the different building stages, now its just some details and painting left.
