据说起源自公元17世纪前后,当时在原始森林密布的瑞典中部达拉那地区,人们多以伐木为生。工人们一旦进入森林,常常是十天半个月,最多甚至要待上半年。伐木工人思念孩子,就有人想到用木头刻一些小玩具,回家可作为给孩子的礼物。而今日,达拉木马已成为瑞典的一种国家象征与标志。

A Dala horse is a traditional carved, painted wooden horse statuette originating in Swedish province Dalarna. In the old days the Dala horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna, as well as Sweden in general.
