Craftsman Constantin Lungu

mester popular constantin lunguArtisan Constantin Lungu, president of the Association of Craftsmen in Neamt County, has the workshop in Humuleşti near Targu Neamt. Specialized in wood carving, he works sticks, sheepfold rods and clubs, hatchets of elderberry wood and hazel wood, some inlaid, some tin-plated at the end of which are carved various images of men depicting shepherds guarding their flocks of sheep. Alongside these, we discover in his workshop beautiful chests, crafted clad in tin foil in which are inlaid traditional symbols, the sun and the cross. Master confesses that realization of such objects require much time, metal inlay being painstaking: metal must be pulled in thin sheets through a calender and then beaten the object itself with special tools. Masks for New Year holidays are another craft that Costi Lungu perpetuates. Along with other members of the Association participates in a project aimed at traditional folk crafts in Neamt, which aims to attract talented children from schools who want to learn the art of crafting different products that they see with their own eyes out of the hands of our craftsmen. In this way they pass on the tradition.
