According to the legend, some children were grazing their flocks near the pass of Costalunga, when an old man came and asked them if they had seen his knife. The kids said no and went to help in the search, but without success. When they heard the bells of the evening they had to go back to the village. But Mènega, the older of the group, saw during the descent the gleaming knife between the flowers, picked it up and went back to give it back to its owner. The old man spoke: "In order to thank you, tomorrow I will let you take the prettiest of my dolls. But now run home, at this time bad witches come down from the Mugoni." On the way back home an old woman stared in front of Mènega with gentle behavior. Mènega tells her of the meeting with the old man, and the woman said with a smile: "Oh, darling! That man is the rich Venetian. Don't settle for his silk dolls, but ask those adorned with brocade and jewellery. The old man will be forced to give them to you, if you will speak these words: stone girls with silk cloths, stay there to admire the Latemar! ". Then the woman disappeared into the woods. The next day the kids went on the Latemar to receive their reward. In the mountainside a door opened and from there came a long parade of dolls dressed with gaudy silk dresses. Mènega immediately pronounced the formula. Laughters rose from the forest while the dolls got turned into stones.
Even today, when the sun shines, you can admire the gaudy clothes of these petrified figures.

What happens if only a portion of my order is available for immediate shipment?

In order to offer you the lowest shipping rates, we combine similar items in one shipment subject to the processing times of all items in the shipment (see process and delivery times).

This may affect your shipping charges, but you can contact one of our advisors directly for information.
