Південна Буковина

Southern Bukovyna


In using the term “Southern Bukovyna,” Binyashevsky was referring to that part of Bukovyna which is now in Romania.  The northern part of Bukovyna was partly ethnic Hutsul, and strongly influenced by the Hutsuls.  Southern Bukovyna has more of a visible Romanian influence.

The two pysanky here are of moderate complexity.  The one on the left is similar to Podillian Berehynia pysanky (“kucheri”), despite the name.  The one on the right has a common Bukovynian division, but the detail are less complex than those of most Bukovynian pysanky.  The perervy (small hooks) are a common feature of Bukovynian decorative pysanka design.
