Sicilian Carts are covered with colorful folk designs and motifs that seem to be primarily medieval (Crusader knights fighting the Arabs) or religious. They may also be carved with gargoyles, mermaids, angels, & flowers. Underneath the carts, such things as the cartman might need, like an umbrella, a jug of wine, or bucket.

“Il carretto siciliano… Il simbolo della Sicilia e della sua tradizione. Nel suo complesso rappresenta una sintesi delle civiltà mediterranee che posero piede nell'isola, il loro concentrato: i colori Arabi, gli arabesci Turco-Bizantini, i costumi Greci, le "cianciane", le "frange" Spagnole.

Painted Sicilian Carts ~ are covered in brightly painted scenes from Sicilian folklore or history. At a time when most of the island`s residents were illiterate, the carts were able to illustrate not only historical events but also provide information on the owners and their trade. The horses and donkeys used to pull the carts are also often dressed up in colorful and elaborate costumes. #Sicily #Painted_Carts #Caretto
