Simbolika tvarne kulture – lonček z Brezij
The Symbolism of Material Culture: Example of a Small Pot from Brezje

Benjamin Štular



The author discusses in this contribution the symbolism of an Early Medieval pot from the Brezje above Zreče necropolis. The pot is exeptional due to the Greek cross impressed on the base. The impression correlates exactly with the cross-shaped brooch from Saint Lambert near Pristava. In one object, this small pot, the Slavic ritual – a small pot as an object of grave inventory - and the Vlach custom - a Christian symbol - are combined. Consequently, this is an example of the coalescence of the logic of real with the logic of abstract.
