Південна Буковина

South Bukovyna


I am not sure if Binyashevsky was referring to that part of Bukovyna which is now in Romania, or the southern half of that part which remains in Ukraine; I suspect the latter.  The northern part of Bukovyna was partly ethnic Hutsul, and largely 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.
