Pysanky from Binyashevsky’s collection that he identifies as being from Hutsul regions, which are found in IvanoFrankivsk, Chernivtsi and Zakarpattia oblasts. There is a large number of such pysanky here, and from many different villagers, although Kosmach is a bit overrepresented.

The names of the pysanky are those given to them by Binyashevsky, not necessarily the “folk names” given by pysankary.  Many are simple descriptors, and he tends to use “zirky” (stars) rather than “ruzhi” (mallows), despite the latter being the more common folk designation.  This is true of other names, too.

The numbers assigned to the pysanky are based on the photo originals that I obtained, and are for my cataloging purposes only.
