Exhibition Catalogue

Ukrainian folk art's most outstanding feature is its ornamentation - individual motifs applied using various techniques (weaving, embroidering, painting, applique, engraving, carving, embossing) and different media (textiles, leather, wood, clay, eggs, metal, and even dough). Beneath the designs lie deeper meanings suffused with the mystery, sacredness, and ritual in whose power people once profoundly believed. The motifs, which date back to ancient times, were signs, symbols, or codes that had cosmic, religious, ritualistic and magical significance. The book describes in detail each of the three motifs mentioned in the title in three separate essays, and contains full color photographs of 115 objects from the exhibition.
