Ukrainian Carpathian Hutsul Carvings

One of the perks of traveling the back roads of Ukraine looking for new and interesting hand crafted one of a kind items is getting to meet many outstanding artisans. Every summer my wife and I visited one of our favorite spots in the magnificent Carpathian Mountains where the Hutsul Highlanders have lived for many generations in the many secluded mountain valleys and forest. These artisans are wood carvers, who use a variety of local woods like sycamore, maple, pear, apple, alder, yew, cedar, walnut and oak. Because every piece of wood has its own distinctive grain patterns warmth and colors these creative masters use many geometric ornaments like crusts, triangles, squares, rhombs, rose-window, jags, circles or conventionalized plants motives. Each décor element is made with special technical carving method to reach very special artistic effect because of their deep-rooted bond with mother nature.
