In the mid-1970s, the Ukrainian Student Association asked the then World Heritage Museum about creating a display featuring Ukrainian folk art. The students selected wood carvings, ceramics, embroidery, and pysanky (Easter eggs) that shared a common Ukrainian cultural significance yet demonstrated differing regional designs. After the exhibit, the Association donated these and other items to the museum.
Note: ceramics (9, 30, 31) designs are based on Neolithic era ceramics from the Trypilian culture.
