National Museum of Ukrainian Decorative Folk Art


These are photos I took of a set of pysanky of Chernivtsi oblast at the National Museum of Decorative Arts located in the Pecherska Lavra (Monastery of the Caves). They are noted as being from the 1970s and 1980s.

No other provenance is given.  This is the explanatory tag:

The pysanky are similar in appearance to those collected by Ivan Balan, mostly in Roztocky.

The photos were taken under low ambient light; I have edited the photos to show the pysanky individually. Some, unfortunately, are out of focus, but enough detail remains to enable them to be reproduced.
