Polish Folk Paper Cut Art (Wycinanki)

Whilst on a recent trip home to see the folks, we popped in, as always to Wolverhampton Art Gallery which had some really interesting craft displays on (and still on till 14 April) with the exhibition The Joy of Making. The Polish folk paper cut designs (known as Wycinanki) were particularly stunning. You can read more here http://www.wolverhamptonart.org.uk/exhibitions/004785.html and i took a (poor) picture below.

i also did some googling and there are some stunning examples at the links below. Some of it is quite naive in style but i like it.
