Північна Буковина

North Bukovyna

 
 

Bukovyna was settled by ethnic Hutsuls who moved down from the highlands to the north. They brought with them their love of complex decorative design, and intricate pysanky. 

The pysanky on this page reflect Bukovynian pysanka design, with much hatchwork, but without the love of predominating orange and yellow seen in some Hutsul areas (e.g. Kosmach). The “Eight” division (top right) and the diagonal band (bottom right) are characteristic of Bukovynian pysanka design.
