Ukrainian treasures go on show in Melbourne.

The Exhibition of Ukrainian art and craft, titled “Treasures”, opens in Melbourne this month showcasing thousands of years of the culture and traditions of the war-ravaged nation, includes paintings, ceramics, sculpture, embroidery, woodwork and decorated eggs.

Highlights among the pieces on show are the yellow, green and brown ‘Kosiv’ ceramics, which come from the Carpathian Mountains and have UNESCO heritage status.

There are also ‘Pysanky’ decorated Easter eggs on which are motifs painted with beeswax and natural dye.

There are also examples of the fascinating ‘Bandura’ sixty-string musical instruments.

The pieces come from the collection of the Ukrainian Museum of Australia, in North Melbourne, founded by Father Zenon Chorkayj in 1976.
