              Arches of lights

              Arches of lights

              As part of the beautiful traditional Christmas carving art, candle arches are of course an integral part of Advent. The longing for warmth and light in winter, when it is bitterly cold and dark outside, causes us to let candle arches shine in the windows. In addition to the incense men and pyramids known all over the world, candle arches are one of the most beautiful traditions at this time of year .
              Many years ago, out of great need in the Erzgebirge, handmade candle arches and candle arches began their international triumph. As Christmas decorations, they have long been embellishing the Advent season and Christmas around the globe with their splendor. Customers value solid craftsmanship and traditional manufacturing processes. The price should not put too much strain on the household budget and should therefore be affordable . Even though there are light arches made of many materials, wood is still the most popular material.

              Since when have there been arches of lights from the Erzgebirge?

              The legends are not entirely clear, because the history goes back a long way . The origin is definitely anchored in the Christian world, where candle arch production can be found in ore and silver mining as early as the 12th century. Since the miners ' wages were meager and life was full of deprivation, miners made carved figures and candle arches for household use with great skill. The motifs were mostly typical everyday situations. The candle arch or candle arch symbolizes the brick entrance to the tunnel, also known as the mouth hole. The candle arch is also seen as a symbol of the arch of heaven . This is evidenced by the fact that the first representations under the arch were Christian in nature.

              Regardless of the origin, word about the quality and decorative benefits spread very quickly. Candle arches or candle arches soon became a sought-after decorative element. The spectrum of motifs expanded and opened up to the worldly. The focus was on the everyday life of the miners and their families . A very well-known motif is the three main sources of income for the Erzgebirge rural population in the 18th and 19th centuries (miners, carvers, lace makers). Many people also know the church in the Erzgebirge village of Seiffen. There are now no limits when it comes to choosing a motif for anything you like.
