★ Unique, handcrafted masonry construction. This is one of a kind home decoration / gift piece specific to Istria County ( the westernmost county of Croatia ). The recognizable element of the Istrian identity ★

A downscaled replica of the Istrian kažun (a dry stone shelter with a corbelled roof).
Based on a solid stone slab, hand cut pieces of natural masonry stone which form the kažun are tied together with concrete. Use of the concrete as a bonding material requires more manual labor ( several polishing cycles ) but the bond is much more durable and weather resistant, especially when used for outdoor decoration such as garden decoration.

More about kažun:

One room, dry stone and mostly round structure is one of the Istrian specificities. Kažuni were traditionally used as shelters for farmers and shepherds in remote fields, and for storing tools. They were erected in the areas where the stone had to be removed to obtain fertile land. As a result, a lot of stone was left behind. Its interesting features are its dimensions and a particular construction method, a so-called dry stone building, a simple placing of stones on top of each other with no mutual bond. *The recognizable element of the Istrian identity.*

Overall dimensions:

Height ( top to bottom ): 15.5 cm ( 6.1" )
Stone base: 18 x 12 cm ( 7.1 x 4.7" )
Kazun diameter: 12 cm ( 4.7" )
Door opening: 3 x 4.7 cm ( 1.18 x 1.85" )
Weight: 1.65 kg ( 3.63 lbs )
