Custom made hanging cradles with engraved Latvian symbols and tripods
Hanging cradle is a revival of old traditions. ZINTAO custom made
hanging baby cradles AIJĀ ŽŪŽŪ are made of one-piece solid wood planks,
they are hanged on a metal or wooden spring, and base of the cradle is made of cotton twine. The baby grows weightless in its mother’s belly, and at birth suddenly enters the environment with enormous force of gravity. It can only be changed by tuning the body’s rhythms, so that the baby feels a certain weightlessness as the baby is rocking rhythmically. The hanging cradle will make the baby feel like in its mother’s belly again, soothing him or her and gradually accustoming to this world.
