"Wild Maa at Vogel Gryff" Top 5 Page for this destination Basel Local Custom Tip by Myndo
Basel Local Customs: 27 reviews and 34 photos
The Wild Maa (wild man) is another of the three Representants of the three Ehrengesellschaften of the smaller Basel. (see under Vogel Gryff tip)
For a child is it an impressive and maybe frightening figure. It wears a crown and belt of ivy with apples in it and it is swinging a smaller tree ....
But the apples are special. The children are trying to "steal" one of them from the Wild Maa....
And if you are a woman and happen to get one of them as a present from the Wild Maa it is said that you are going to be pregnant - and soon!
7 kgs of apples the wild man has on him - but as you see in the picture they are all already gone ... so maybe he is not so a bad guy at all?
But uiuiui that tree can stitch if you happen to get to careless!
