acrylic on unstretched canvas - 35" x 65"
reproduction of an authentic Ukrainian embroidery design
I have not been able to find the author nor any kind of precise explanation for this design. It is just one of my favuorites. There is a vocabulary of forms and symbols that are used throughout all the Ukranian designs and I will elaborate on this as I learn more - for example, a certain kind of zig-zag means strength or prosperity.
