A very singular style is Trypilian. These patterns come from pottery done in Trypillia (40 km south of Kiev) 6,000 years ago..and have become quite popular since the archeological discovery of the Trypilian ruins by Vikentiy Xvoika around the 1890's.
These people were a matriarchal society who first built the first square-cornered stone houses, introduced agriculture and animal husbandry to the area now known as Ukraine.
They are believed to have come from the east and were fine potters and coppersmiths. Their designs denote their worship of "mother earth", being done in earth colors of red ochre, carbon black and the white or natural tan of the egg.
