The World of Herdsmen – An Homage to Ottó Herman (12 September, 2014 to 20 February, 2015)

Our temporary exhibition presents the past and present of Hungarian herdsmen from their traditions, social customs and feasts to traditional handicrafts.

How to use shepherd's crooks? How do the bells of a herdsman sound? Why do cowherd's guard dogs have white hair? These and several other interesting questions will be answered by the new temporary exhibition of the Museum of Hungarian Agriculture, The World of Herdsmen - An Homage to Ottó Herman.

Our exhibition presents the past and present of Hungarian herdsmen, from oral traditions and other ways of expression to the arts to social customs and feasts to traditional handicrafts.

The exhibition is also a commemoration of and homage to the famous Hungarian natural scientist and polyhistor Ottó Herman, on occasion of the 100th anniversary of his death. In 1907 Ottó Herman organized an exhibition in the Royal Museum of Hungarian Agriculture dedicated to the traditional occupations of Hungarians (in his interpretation), including pastoralism. The World of Herdsmen temporary exhibition offers a selection from those original artefacts and dwelling models that survived wartime damages and remain cherished objects of the current Museum of Hungarian Agriculture.
