Puzuri & saulītes / Himmeli / Šiaudų sodai / Pajaki / Соломенный паук / North European straw mobiles

Puzuri are made of reeds or straws threaded onto yarn or twine in cascading, nesting and concentric octahedral/pyramidal arrangements (sometimes also other polygons). Feathers, tufts of colored yarn (usually red) and blown eggs may be added. Latvians and Finns make them for winter solstice, while Lithuanians do it for spring equinox. Saulītes (Little Suns) are small potatoes pierced with dried sedges and grasses. Both are hung from the ceiling during the festivities. "Straw spiders" in Russian.
