This Belarussian paper cut-out is cut across one symmetrical axis. It depicts a household. A great precision of cut-out and faithful presentation of details are worth a closer look. The artist cut out decorative window shutters, walls, an entrance, cats and pitchers on the fence creating a very authentic and credible composition.

Special attention should be drawn to a very elaborate and artistic paper cut-out frame which was individually chosen by a professional framing studio.

The frame is made from dark brown wood with a clearly visible structure of rings. Dark-brown passé-partout complements the entire composition, creating a distinct contrast against the intensive orange colour of the paper-cut-out. A pane protects the paper cut-out against destruction. The frame is equipped with a loop which enables it to be hung.

The paper cut-outs has been present in Belarussian tradition for many ages. According to an old custom, on the occasion of the religious celebrations: Christmas and Easter, special-event paper cut-outs had been made to decorate interiors. Women used to cut out “curtains”, to frame a saint’ paintings with paper decorations or to prepare lace serviette for windowsills, shelves and wooden ceiling beams. The paper cut-outs had been afterworlds fired to replace them next year with new ones, more beautiful decorations.

Apart from paper cut-outs depicting religious celebrations, in western part of Belarusse paper decorations presenting scenes from every-day countryside life: haymaking, harvest, household were popular. In recent years, the renaissance of paper cut-outs tradition has been observed. The Paper-cut-out school was established in Mołodecznie 10 years ago.

The graduates contribute to popularization of Belarussian tradition and culture worldwide.
