Tetyana is a master of traditional folk dolls from Volhynia. Within a very short period she learned to create characteristic Ukrainian dolls. She gives each one a name and sews corresponding luxurious clothes for them.
“A doll is not only a toy for me; first of all it is the family and Kin obereg; it is a mighty magic talisman and a symbol of connection between generations. To my mind, the main purpose of the doll is to protect its master’s soul from evil and ill thoughts. I treat the process of motanka creation with care. I start working only when in good mood and put a part of my soul into each created doll.”
