Summary/Abstract: The ornament in Folk art is the basic means to suggest aesthetically meaningful information. It emphasises the significance of the objects by means of their representative outlook and stimulates the aesthetic perception of their symbolic contents or message. The ornament stimulates emotional contact, which is not limited to purely hedonistic contemplation, but also helps the accomplishment of interpersonal and social relations. The ornamentation of the material world is one of the forms of participation in the artistic life and a significant aspect of social activity in the traditional societies.
