Veterinary device, approx. 12 cm long iron blade with a protruding knife-like piece at one end. The vascular cutter may be made by the veterinarian from the mower piece, forming the striking part. If the cattle are sick, in poor condition, but have no characteristic symptoms of the disease, a vein is cut in it. In animal healing surgery, the animal's neck is looped with asparagus, the asparagus is pulled, then the swollen jugular vein is felt, the vascular cutter is placed on it, and it is deftly struck by the percussion tree before blood flows out of the opened vessel in a long radius. It releases a liter or two of blood from a large animal. Once you have drained enough blood, it relaxes the asparagus and squeezes the cutting site with your finger for a while. It most often cuts a blood vessel around the neck, less often elsewhere, e.g. in case of nail inflammation on the legs. If the sheep is “squeezed by blood,” “hurt by blood,” the shepherd punctures the larger vessel (vein) above the sheep’s eye with a knife, “letting blood”. In today's folk sheep medicine, vascularization of the vein above the eye of the sheep is equally widespread in Transdanubia, in the Great Plain.
In the course of his 40-year-long career, Domán received a significant number of disused farming tools, furniture and other artifacts of ethnographic value from the peasants of Szarvas. The exhibition provides an insight into this rich collection of about 2,500 objects. You can see the characteristic tools used in the living room, the kitchen, and the pantry of a Szarvas peasant house. The farming equipment and tools for animal husbandry vividly evoke the everyday life of the peasants who once lived here, while the herders’ garments and their herding tools introduce you to the organization and operation of herding communities on the Great Hungarian Plain. The exhibition also presents an ornate Hungarian mantle called a cifraszűr, a bullwhip, and a herdsman's crook, as well as the branding iron used for numbering and marking animals.
The exhibition cart leads you to a show on the horsekeeping people known as the Vlax Romani, who were engaged in horse trading and travelled around in covered wagons. In the corridor, an interactive Roma, or Gypsy, cartomancy game will give you an insight into the ancient customs and traditions of the Gypsies. The methods of horsekeeping and of making a living from and for the horses passed down from generation to generation among the Gypsies. Doing his veterinary job, Dr. Domán came into direct contact with the Gypsy people of Szarvas, who lived in rather poor conditions, oftentimes in miserable sheds called putris. He managed to acquire the Romani, or Gypsy, language over time and learned much about the methods the Gypsies used to cure their sick horses. The tools used in veterinary medicine are considered an outstanding part of the collection.
