The old tradition of Horezu ceramics (Valcea County) was included in the UNESCO Intangible Heritage in 2012.

In 2019 June I had the opportunity to visit such a workshop (“Pietraru”) and, on a wall, I remarked a painting with the main symbol, the Cock of Horezu, which is a solar symbol, the cocks announcing the dawn.

I also remarked another astral symbol over there, a joyous star.
