Record Type: concept
hairwork (<visual works by material or technique>, visual works (works), ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Keepsakes made from hair, usually from human hair but occasionally also from the hair of a beloved pet. The hair is often braided and arranged in decorative patterns, entwined over wire forms, etc. While hair is the primary medium of such works, seed pearls, glass beads, ribbons, dried flowers, and other materials may be included. Hairworks are often memorials, typically worn or displayed as a mourning ornament in memory of the donor of the hair. However, they may also be made from the hair of living individuals, such as the members of a family or of a church congregation. Hairwork was popular during the Victorian era.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Souvenirs gemaakt van haar, gewoonlijk van mensen, maar soms ook van een geliefd huisdier. Het haar wordt vaak gevlochten in decoratieve patronen, om objecten van ijzerdraad gedraaid, enzovoort. Haar is het belangrijkste materiaal van dit soort objecten, maar men gebruikt soms ook zaadparels, glazen kralen, linten, gedroogde bloemen en andere materialen. Haarwerken zijn vaak aandenkens. Gewoonlijk draagt men ze of stalt men ze uit ter herinnering van degene van wie het haar was. Maar men maakt ze ook van het haar van levende personen, zoals de leden van een gezin of een kerkgemeenschap. Haarwerk was vooral populair in het victoriaanse tijdperk. 
German ..... Aus Haaren hergestelltes Erinnerungsstück, gewöhnlich aus menschlichem Haar, aber gelegentlich auch aus dem Haar eines geliebten Haustieres. Das Haar ist oft geflochten und zu dekorativen Mustern angeordnet, über Drahtformen geschlungen usw. Obwohl Haar das Hauptmedium einer solchen Arbeit ist, können Saat- und Glasperlen, Bänder, Trockenblumen und andere Materialien einbezogen sein. Haararbeiten sind oft Objekte, die als Trauerschmuck zur Erinnerung an den Haarbesitzer getragen oder ausgestellt werden. Sie können jedoch auch aus dem Haar von lebenden Personen gemacht sein, zum Beispiel Mitgliedern einer Familie oder einer Kirchengemeinde. Haararbeiten waren in viktorianischer Zeit populär.
