The first impulse which drew the new holder of the title of Master of Folk Art Production Ľuboš Majan to folk crafts was a whip hanging on the fence of his friend’s grandfather, Martin Priadka. When he saw it, he liked the look of it. He knew from hearsay that it made a “huge racket”. The experienced man recognised the passion in Ľuboš’ eyes and thus explained to him the whole manufacturing process. He had made the simply ornamented whip hanging on the fence as a young man, and although it was falling apart in places, it still worked. The then fourteen-year-old Ľuboš Majan was so struck by this experience that he made a similar one himself.
