Maruška Vidovič, Marjetka Jelenc


The paper presents nutrition as a fundamental biological function in connection with art from wider Škofjeloško-Selška area on the examples of medieval wall paintings-frescoes, painted beehive panels and examples of folk art such as small breads, Dražgoše breads and some other folk arts related to nutrition. The study on nutrition and art was included in the multi-year project Research of the Population Structures of Slovenia, with which we determine the types of populations, the direction of their development, their ecological, genetic and other effects, as well as their interactions. DOI
