Hutsul Embroidery is the first publication of its kind to
present the panorama of the most typical examples of Hutsul embroidery as embodied
in the collection of the Y. Kobrynsky Museum of the Folk Art of the Hutsul and
Pokuttia Regions (Kolomyia, Ukraine). The reader is presented with unique creations
that mesmerize one with the beauty of their composition and ornamental motifs, as
well as with the clarity of the artistic and aesthetic characteristics of these
works. The motifs are ancient symbols that have survived to the
present day in various interpretations.
