The Dala Horse (or Dalahästen in Swedish) is a traditional carved and painted wooden horse statuette originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna. In the old days the Dala horse was mostly used as a toy for children, but in modern times it has grown to become a symbol of not just Dalarna, but Sweden in general.
A recent worldwide survey suggests that the Dala Horse symbol is more well known and associated with Sweden and Swedish culture than other famous Swedish brands such as IKEA or Volvo. So in this category we celebrate the Dala Horse and all of its creative design, shape and form! Which one is your favorite?!
