Giving objects a voice
Scissors
Object of the Month of September 2022
-

Livestock activity has always been one of Luz's main economic sectors, together with agriculture.
Sheep cattle stood out for the fact that they served not only for food supply, but also for textiles, through wool.
So, this month we exhibit a pair of scissors used for shearing sheep and ram.
The exposed scissors feature two blades, widths and sharps topped by two rings for the thumb and middle fingers.
Material: Iron
