The tulip is one of the national flowers of Hungary and tulip designs are common in Transylvanian folk art.
In the rich Hungarian history of folk art, the living (and beyond living) Universe’s structure’s visual information displays in the front and inside of us: Among other things, the true representation of the tulip as a pattern.
The introduction of tulip to Europe is attributed to the Ottomans and dated to the mid-end of the sixteenth century, followed by the famous Tulipmania (also called the Tulipomania or the Tulip Fever) of the United Provinces (currently the Netherlands) towards the middle of the seventeenth century. But tulips also got to central and eastern Europe. In Transylvania it remains yet unclear when and how the new oriental flowers were introduced - the only possible sources on the matter are for now depictions of the flowers on various types of decorative objects: carpets, embroideries, stove tiles.
In the Hungarian folk art the tulip has a lot of meaning. For exmple it symbolizes the sky-high tree, which isn’t a life-like, but rather a symbolical representation. It’s actually targets God’s symbolic representation using the sky-high tree (in other words, the Milky Way).
From the beginning of the Hungarian folk songs and the material folk art, the representations of the tulips are very common. Its transformed form as a sign can be found on gate-posts, headstones, stove tiles, embroideries, hope chests, through the gifts of love, even on tools used specifically by women, ( for instance, carved distaff, paddle, mangle, etc.), and of course, also on the dishes.
