The Smoker from the Erzgebirge can look back on a very long tradition. Already in the middle of the 18 th century, namely, where we came up with the idea for the manufacture of incense wooden figures to the so-called Smokers. These are those who start in their cores, the Cones and the evolving smoke over a round hole (mouth) to give back. This old Erzgebirge folk art is also currently still practiced by some well-known arts and crafts workshops such as the KWO and Hubrig. The product range, which initially consisted only of light figures, the arc lights and arches, was expanded several years ago and over again with other wooden figures. Beside Nativity, figurines, pyramids and nutcrackers, which are traditional for Christmas decorations and are also known far beyond theErzgebirge, are now well advanced Sitters, music boxes and flower children made by hand. How about these past times, is even now prepared Erzgebirgische each figure manually filed and traditionally painted. ThanExisted for the ancient wooden figures were used, the former occupations. Miners and blacksmiths were especially popular characters. Much was based largely on the mining industry. Thus, the Arches, a then the dugout steps reflect and represent how the former miners looked for the last shift before Christmas their dugout entrance. The very first archway was built in 1726 of iron hand. Meanwhile, these are made of wood. Then and even today every miner’s family stood in the Erzgebirge, miner figurines and angel figurines with candle in the window. They should donate the returning miners after the shift light. Depending on the number of established miner figurines and angel figurines, the neighborhood could see how many daughters and sons belonged to a family. TheErzgebirge Christmas Pyramids widely known already decorated for Christmas in 1800 the churches. Motive was for a pit conveyor system, which had been brought by water or horse power in operation. The pyramids themselves were made so that it with the warm air of the candles in functionbe placed. Now there are not just small shops in the Erzgebirge, where wooden sculptures and music boxes can be purchased. On Christmas markets are always well-represented market stalls that offer this popular art. Arches and nutcrackers are now at Christmas time as the Christmas tree and are always a welcome gift.
