Summary / Abstract:

LTStraipsnyje, remiantis daugiausia tradicinėmis lietuvių mįslėmis, analizuojami mįslių užminimų kuriami vaizdai su arkliais ir vaizdai, kuriais maskuojami įminimų arkliai. Tam pasitelkiama semantinė analizė, taip pat ieškoma atitikmenų platesniame kultūriniame kontekste. Kartu, aptariant arklių vaizdavimą mįslėse, mėginama nors šiek tiek panagrinėti aktualią problemą, kiek senõs, su pasaulėvaizdžiu susijusios informacijos perduodama mįslėmis, kiek ta informacija patikima, ar galima ja remtis atliekant įvairias pasaulėvaizdžio ir mitologijos rekonstrukcijas.

ENMostly on the basis of analysis of the traditional Lithuanian riddles, the article focuses on the images of horses, created in the questions of the riddles, and on the images that mask horses in the answers. To this end, semantical analysis is employed and parallels are sought in broader cultural context. According to the author, the horses in riddles are most commonly associated to the following semantical fields: fire, metal, sky and air, nutrition, sexuality (particularly male) and house. Connection between horses and water or ship is somewhat controversial, making the image of the horse more ambivalent, yet it is elucidated by the fact that in such cases it is the mare that is most commonly talked about. Being the horse of the female gender, the mare is a kind of mediator between the masculine and feminine spheres. The survey and analysis of the horse images in Lithuanian riddles reveal quite numerous coincidences between the riddle information and the cultural context. This allows concluding that riddles, especially their question parts, can justly be considered reliable sources of the preserved archaic information, provided that dissemination of variants as well as the thematical context in question both within the corpus of riddles and outside it are considered [From the publication]
