aph-ukraina:




Vytynanky(Ukraine) or Vytsinanka(Belarus) or Wycinanki(Poland), are a Slavic version of the art form of papercutting, popular in Ukraine, Belarus and Poland.
Historical evidence suggests that vytynanky began to be made in Ukraine at the end of the fifteenth to early sixteenth century, but it took quite some time before they became an integral part of the decorative arts practiced at the grass roots level. During the nineteenth century decorative paper cutouts spread all across the Ukrainian countryside.
