    Ancient Slavs most common art was wood carving and making wooden statues. Highly developed as folk art were wood carving and ceramics. Wood items were carved and inlaid as well as painted. Musical instruments were fashioned for local amateur musicians. Carving traditions were passed from father to son to grandson. In time, the carving became more detailed and exquisite and was admired for its purely artistic value. As with all ancient art forms, decorative symbols and designs originally held ritual meaning and protected against evil.
         
          The best examples of wood carving are found in Carpathian Ukraine. There, the mountain people called Hutsuls brought Ukrainian wood carving to its highest level of expression. Motifs are primarily geometric but include low-relief carving as well. Entire church interiors are carved and inlaid, and homes are beautifully decorated with swirling geometric designs and inlay.

    Thanks for starting interesting topic. There are some fantastic wood carvings.

    Many of these pieces look like modern works of well-known Russian artist Kronid Gogolev. He was born in Novgorod region and most of his work is related to the Russian north. Many wood carvings above don’t depict the Carpathian Mountains region.
    The bird is definitely the work of Kronid Gogolev. http://www.perunica.rod1.org/russkie_xudozhniki/5876-kronid-aleksandrovich-gogolev-master-rezby-po-derevu.html

    Peasants are wearing traditional Russian clothes and there are no rivers and boats in Carpathians Mountains. Hutsuls have different traditional clothings

    Kronid Gogolev was born on July 13, 1926 in the Novgorod province in the family of the former priest.
    These carvings are made by Kronid A. Gogolev ( Гоголев Кронид Александрович ) from Russian Federation, Republic of Karelia, Sortavala.
    Kronid Gogolev is a People’s Artist of Russia, State Prize Laureate of Russia and a Honoured art and culture person of Russia and Karelia.
    Work of Kronid Gogolev are devoted to the Russian north, the rustic and provincial city life of Russian northern nature and folk.
