Boiko region


The Boiko people are also mountain dwellers, and live in the Ukrainian Carpathians in an area northwest of the Hutsuls (and southeast of the Lemky). Boiko pysanky tend to be largely linear, with little coloring in of designs.  They usually have a limited color range (white + color + background), and the background colors tend to be dark, although not always black.

The two pysanky in the bottom row can also be found in Elyjiw’s Plast stamps.
