Swedish Dala Horses, Roosters, and Pigs. Join Our Newsletter Join Our Newsletter.   The “Dalahäst” or Swedish Dala Horse. Last Updated on May 3, While much beloved, the Dala horse is not a living, breathing breed, but a traditional carved, painted wooden horse statuette originating in Swedish province Dalarna, about four hours northwest of Stockholm.

  The Dala horse became a Swedish icon in the 20th century. The 13 and year-old Olsson brothers had great timing. After being featured in the Paris World’s Expo in and the New York World’s Fair in , the Dala horse became Sweden’s most recognized emblem. Dala Horses, Roosters, and even a Pig are expertly handmade and painted at the workshop of Nils Olsson in Sweden. While some of these Dala Horse pieces are not made by hand, they certainly convey the beauty and pride from Dalarna, Sweden’s most beloved symbol.
