     What is vytinanka? This is a delicate pattern, cut out of  black, white or colored paper. To be precise, it is a technique of cutting paper. It appeared in the territory of Belarus in the 18th –19th centuries. Now this art form is experiencing a rebirth.
From the application it is distinguished by the fact that all the image - this is a solid piece of paper.

     It's very beautiful, isn't it?
