Pysanky from Binyashevsky’s collection that he identifies as being from Pokuttia, the foothills and plains to the east of the Hutsul region. Pokuttia is located within Ivano-Frankivsk oblast.

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.
