More About This Title Hutsul Embroidery


This artistic monograph is the first of its kind to present the panorama of the most typical examples of Hutsul embroidery, specifically those embodied in the collection of the Ukrainian Kobrynsky National Museum of Folk Art. Presenting a selection of beautiful, unique creations, this is a sophisticated work of stunning composition; ornamental motifs; and clear, artistic, and aesthetic characteristics. These motifs are ancient symbols that have survived to the present day in the most varied of interpretations.
