Some works of the naïve sculptor Petar Smajić (1910-1985) are compared with the selected examples of the traditional woodcarving of his wider native area. The morphological and thematic similarities have been noticed in the comparison of some of his works which belong to the so-called Dalmatian period from 1932 till 1941 and the works of the anonymous woodcarvers from the Dalmatian hinterland from the late 19th and early 20 th century, which are kept in the holdings of the Split Ethnographic Museum. The analysed works are: Smajić’s The Gusle with the Decoration Representing Man on Horseback (1932), The Cavalry Pyramid/Horseman (1933), The Horseman/Peasant on Horseback (1933) and The Head of Peasant Woman (around 1933) and the works of anonymous authors who formed the human figure (horseman, narrator), the figure of the horse on the top of the neck of the gusle (stringed instrument with a bow) and the human face on the traditional flute (diple). The observations confirm that Smajić began with traditional woodcarving which was deeply rooted in his work and raise the possibility of monitoring his artistic development from the collective to individual style. It is assumed that better knowledge of the art traditions of the native area could contribute to the valorization of the creativity of the other authors of Croatian Naïve Art.
