This handmade hair barrette is a beautiful piece of art made from natural wood and hand-painted in one of the most recognizable Ukrainian folk art techniques – Petrykivka painting.
Petrykivka painting (or Petrykivka) is a traditional Ukrainian decorative painting style, originating from the village of Petrykivka in Dnipropetrovsk oblast of Ukraine, from which the style takes its name. Ornamental painting on walls and on paper were common in many villages of the Dnipropetrovsk area, but were most prevalent and highly developed in the village of Petrykivka. The earliest known examples of this style date from the 18th century. This folk art style features flower patterns, distinctive brush techniques, and its traditionally white background (contemporary painters, however, often work on black, green, red or blue backgrounds).
The author's work painted with oils in the folk style of Petrykivka gives the product the most saturated, bright and contrasting colors. The item is covered with four (4) layers of glossy lacquer coating. The hair barrette has a strong and secure base to hold your hair in place.
