The Šavrinka as a person and as a symbol
<p>In the period from the late 19th century until the Second World War the hilly area of Koper's hinterland saw the development of a special trade in eggs, carried out predominantly by women called Šavrinke (sing. Šavrinka; after the area's name Šavrinija.) They purchased eggs in central Istria to sell them in Trieste. Nowadays there are no more eggwomen, but the Šavrinka lives on in a certain symbolic way. The article is based on the Šavrinka as a medium in the sense of place and time.

The bird-catchers of Kropa
<p>The nail-makers of Kropa used to catch birds to keep them in their homes. Bird-cages were hung on the walls and some people had up to twenty birds. Then the nail-makers returned home in the evening after a day of hard work which at times lasted sixteen hours the birds delighted them with their songs. In this way they arranged for themselves a little piece of nature at home. They caught males - songbirds - and sometimes took home whole nests including the young. The birds were taught to sing different tunes.
