According to popular beliefs, the stylized images of snakes, birds, tortoises, flowers, bring happiness and protection of people. The coloures of the decoration also carry a lot of meaning. Red is predominant, as a symbol of fertility and regenerating nature, of the sun and the fire. The wool also has been a symbol of the fertility.
