Product Description

Polish wycinanki became a popular folk craft in the mid 1800's.

Wycinanki originated with shepherds cutting designs out of tree bark and leather. Colorful wycinanki were pasted on furniture or roof beams as decoration, hung in windows, and given as gifts.

Wycinanki vary by region. For example, wycinanki created in the Kurpie region are typically all one color, while wycinanki from the Ɓowicz region are multicolored. Techniques include cutting, clipping, punching, tearing, and carving of paper, as well as nalepianki in which multiple layers are glued together.

Subject matter includes peacocks, roosters, and other birds; circular or star-shaped medallions (gwiazdy); flowers; and annual holidays such as Easter and Christmas. In some towns and villages competitions evolved to create the most beautiful wycinanki. Traditionally done for relaxation in rural Poland, the techniques were passed down through generations, with new themes and ideas developing as the papercuttings became more detailed and intricate.

While wycinanki is the art of cutting designs, this magnificent large pink bulb is painted with the theme of wycinanki, peacocks are the focal point on this beautiful piece of art along with hearts and flowers.  This ornament measures 12 Cm (Approx. 4 3/4")  MOUTH BLOWN AND HAND PAINTED IN POLAND
