Західне Поділля

Western Podilla


This region correspond to southern Khmelnytsky oblast and eastern Ternopil oblast.  It is known for its multitude of berehynia-motif pysanky.  The berehynyi are stylized and highly abstracted, largely linear with little coloring in.  The result is stark designs on a black background.

Most of the designs below are variations on the berehynia; in Christian times they have been renamed, but still retain their magical powers.
