''A Dalecarlian horse or Dala horse (Swedish: Dalahäst) is a traditional, stoutly carved, painted bright wooden figurine of a horse with a harness in white, green, yellow and blue, originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna (Dalecarlia). In the olden days the wooden Dalecarlian horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna, as well as of Sweden in general''
