Memorials III / Monumentos a los caídos III / Monuments aux morts III / Memoriais de guerra III

Part III. Parte III

In English:

When photographing churches, it is quite natural to visit on local cemeteries. What is eye striking, are war memorials or as we call them: “Pro Patria” in English “For the Fatherland” statues. Some of them are great, some less great, because some villages are poor. This is quite understandable because total number of deaths was 90 000 and wounded nearly 200 000. This means that in many small villages there were after war nearly young children and old men. Women had to do same work than their decedent husbands and also their own work. But the war is not the only one thing were people died. In 1866–1868 we had great famine. During those years eight percent of total number of our population died. In numbers that is 115707 persons. Also in 1695—1697 we had bigger famine and then 150000 died. That number was about one third about the whole population.

En español:

Al fotografiar iglesias, es bastante natural visitar en cementerios locales. Lo que salta a la vista son monumentos a los caídos o como nosotros los llamamos: “Pro Patria” o en español “Por la Patria” estatuas. Algunos de ellos son espectaculares algunos no lo estan, porque algunos pueblos son pobres. Esto es bastante entendible porque el número de total de muertes fue 90 000 e hirió casi 200 000. Esto significa que en muchas pequeñas aldeas allí habían después de guerrea solamente niños y a ancianos casi jóvenes. Las mujeres tuvieron que hacer mismo trabajo que sus maridos difuntos y además sus propio trabajo. Pero la guerra no es el cosa único dónde fue personas muertas. En 1866–1868 tuvimos el gran hambre. Durante esos años ocho por ciento del número total de nuestra población moría. En los números eso hace 115707 personas. También en 1695—1697 tuvimos más gran hambre y entonces 150000 morían. Ese número estuvo acerca de la tercera parte acerca de la población entera.

En francais:

En photographiant des églises, c’est tout à fait naturel pour visiter les cimetières locaux. Ce qui frappe l’oeil sont des monuments aux morts ou comme nous les appelons : “Pro Patria” ou en français “Pour la patrie” statues. Certains d’elles sont grandes, quelques-unes moins grandes, parce que certains villages sont pauvres. Ceci est tout à fait compréhensible parce que le nombre total de morts était 90 000 et a blessé presque 200 000. Ceci signifie que dans beaucoup de villages petits il y avait après la guerre presque jeunes enfants et les vieil hommes. Les femmes ont dû faire le même travail que leurs défunts maris et de plus leur propre travail. Mais la guerre n’est pas le seul chose quand des gens mouraient. Dans 1866–1868 nous avons eu la grande famine. Pendant ces ans huit pourcent de nombre total de notre population mourait. Dans les nombres c’est 115707 personnes. Aussi dans 1695—1697 nous avons eu la plus grande famine et alors 150000 mouraient. Ce nombre était d’un tiers de la population entière.

Em Português:

Ao fotografar igrejas, é bastante natural para visitar em cemitérios locais. O que é surpreendente olho, são memoriais de guerra ou como lhes chamamos: “Pro Patria” e em portugues “pela pátria” estátuas. Alguns deles são espetaculares alguns não são, porque algumas pessoas são pobres também igrejas. Isto é bastante compreensível, porque o número total de mortes foi de 90 000 e feriu cerca de 200 000. Isto significa que, em muitas pequenas aldeias houve depois da guerra quase crianças jovens e velhos. As mulheres tinham que fazer mesmo trabalho do que seus maridos falecido e também o seu próprio trabalho. Mas a guerra não é a única coisa que eram pessoas morreram. Em 1866-1868, tivemos grande fome. Durante esses anos, oito por cento do número total de nossa população morreu. Em números que é 115.707 pessoas. Também em 1695-1697 tivemos fome maior e, em seguida, 150 mil morreram. Esse número foi de cerca de um terço sobre toda a população.

Poor-man statues 13 / Estatuas de pobre hombre 13 / Statues de Pauvre Homme 13

In English:

Original English text updated in March 2014. In this series there are presented 57 paupers.

These historical wooden Poor-man (pauper) wooden statues are presented in their original surroundings. It is difficult to understand them at first, because man can find them only in Finland and some in Sweden. They are found mainly on the area called Ostrobothnia in Finland. They are part of our cultural heritage and thus being something special. What they are, why man made them, what is their history and how many of them exist? All these questions are replied in my next three posts.

Since I saw the first one nearly ten years ago, I felt sympathy to them. They were so cute, so live looking and well made. Seeing those statues later after years, many of them were in bad condition, I came sad. I saw that time and hard weather had left marks on them. I asked myself if anybody takes care of them, because they needed urgent restoration.

According to the latest calculations there are 145 paupers from which 107 (poor-man statues) + 1 (poor-woman statue) in active service, meaning collecting money to the poor. The rest of them are found in local museums around Finland. Total number of them is calculated to been about 180. In Sweden there are only nine paupers left.

Background:

All this began in 1649 (at that time Finland was under administration of Sweden) when Swedish queen Kristina (1629 – 1689) gave order to make money collection logs. In Europe wars raged around and many soldiers wounded in wars losing foot or arm. When wounded in this way they had to return to their home. These money collection-logs were modified to pauper (poor-man) statues by local artists. They were placed usually beside church doors and on the walls of bell towers. Man built for them small wooden shelter to protect them sun shine, direct rain and snow. In recent years many churches moved them into porches. So, many pauper statues present men missing hand, foot or even ear having models from solders maimed in wars. Man must remember that in the 1700, 1800 and 1900 century people were very poor, but they visited church every Sunday faithfully. I think that these pauper statues were great start for modern help of the poor (social security).

Pauper statues have moneybox in their chest and to put coins into them there is a slot in the chest. In general the Finnish people are honest and this means that there a few robberies against the pauper statues. Robberies have happened, yes indeed. Latest robbery happened in 2013 when the whole pauper statue in Rautio was stolen. It was found after winter in a ditch. The lock and money box were missing, but the statue was in good condition. Also the pauper of Alavieska has been robbed many times. In addition to these robberies, there have been some minor mischiefs like removing hands. Many paupers have beside them a written small phrase. Although the text might slightly differ from others, the main idea is: “he who has mercy on the poor, lends to the Lord”.
My posts go this way: First I present four churches and after photos of every church I show poor man statues with general views and close-ups. Because all pauper statues are presented in their natural environment, You will see also photos from churches, Chandeliers, Pulpits,Altapieces,Altars, Memorialsand Belltowers.

Always I could not visit churches inside, but in many cases yes. Enjoy our cultural heritage!

En español:

Historia de pobres hombres tallada en madera y la estatua estatua de pobrecita mujer.

Hay 107 estatuas de pobre hombres y una estatua de pobrecita mujer.

Al manejar mi carro alrededor en mi país, sacando fotos de las iglesias he encontrado algunas estatuas raras al lado de iglesias o campanarios. Ellos eran hombres o mujeres, y siempre sus mano o el pie había desaparecido, pero de todos modos esos estatues veía bien. Al examinar más de cerca encontré un hueco en ellos. Entonces entendí que se puede poner dinero en el hueco y dentro hay una cajita. ¿Por qué estos cajas / estatuas en madera de pobre hombres mendigos, se han creado, ¿cuándo?

Todo esto empieza en 1649 cuando la reina Cristina de Suecia dio la orden para hacer los leños de los pobres y ponerlos al lado de las puertas de las iglesias, campanarios o algunos lugares públicos. Pronto los leños de los pobres fueron modificados para estatuas de pobre hombre par artistas locales en Finlandia. En ese tiempo Finlandia estaba bajo la administración de Suecia. En Europa guerras devastó todos partes en Europa y muchos soldados heridos mismos perdiendo su pie o el brazo. Cuando heridos de esta manera ellos tuvieron que regresar a su casa.

En el 1700, 1800 y 1900 la gente del siglo era muy pobre, pero ellos visitaron la iglesia todos los domingos fielmente, así el lugar natural para esas estatuas pobres-el hombre estaba fue junto a iglesias o campanarios. Tal vez estas estatuas de pobres hombres ayudó a los más pobres, por supuesto, no existen estadicas.

Este post va de esta manera: Primero presento cuatro iglesias y después las fotos de estatuas pobres hombres.

En francais:

Histoire de statues sculptées en bois de pauvre-homme et de pauvre-femme statue.

Il ya 107 statues de pauvre-hommes et une statue pauvre femme.

Lorsque je conduisais autour dans mon pays pour prendre des photos des églises sur la campagne, j’ai trouvé quelques statues particulières à côté des églises ou des campaniles. Ils étaient des hommes ou des femmes et dont toujours la main ou le pied les manquait, mais de toute façon ces statues avaient l’air si bien. Lorsque en examinant les de plus près, j’ai trouvé une fente. Puis j’ai réalisé que l’on peut mettre des pièces à l’intérieur dans la fente du bûche. Pourquoi ces pauvres bûches / pauvre-homme de bois / bois statues mendiants ont été mis en place, quand?

Tout cela commence 1649 quand Christine de Suède a donné l’ordre de faire les pauvres bûches et de les mettre à côté des portes d’église, clochers ou de certains lieux publics. Bientôt ces pauvres bûches ont été modifiés pour homme pauvres statues par des artistes locaux en Finlande. En ce moment la Finlande était sous l’administration de la Suède. Les guerres faisaient rage autour de l’Europe et nombreux soldats blessés ont perdu le pied ou le bras. Lorsque blessés de cette façon ils devaient retourner à leur domicile.

Dans les années 1700, 1800 et 1900 les gens était très pauvres, mais ils ont visité l’église chaque dimanche fidèlement, de sorte que, le lieu naturel pour ces statues de pauvres-hommes était à côté des églises ou des campaniles. Peut-être ces statues de pauvres-hommes ont aidé les plus pauvres, mais des statistiques, ils existent pas bien sûr.

Mon poste va dans cette façon: Premièrement je présente quatre églises et puis et à la fin les photos de statues de pauvre hommes.
