The whole life of a person goes along with symbols that remind them of their spiritual roots, nationality and dignity, language, country, and authenticity. Ukrainian national symbols date back to Kyivan Rus. Ukrainian ethnic symbols are a unique reflection of the identity of the national culture.
Folk symbols have played an important role in shaping the symbols of power at different times: the Kleynodes, the coat of arms, and the flag. The Trident is one of the Ukrainian symbols that has been found on our territory since ancient times. The oldest image found by archaeologists dates back to the tenth century. It is assumed that at that time it was a magical sign of the family, a talisman.
The number three has always been considered a fairy tale number, a magic number. Folk tales speak of three heroes, three wishes granted by wizards, and three roads laid before fairy-tale heroes. Thus, the trident reflects the trinity of life. These are Father, Mother, and Child. They symbolize Power-Wisdom-Love.
The essence of pottery as an ethnic component of Ukrainian culture is that everything is united by one material – clay – and one emotion – love expressed in creativity: love for the native land, for traditions, and the human desire to return to their origins and values. That is why the exquisite ornaments and colorful engravings of national symbols on pottery are fascinating.
The creative concept of ethnic style in pottery is the revival, modernization, and introduction of earthenware created using ancient technologies. The natural purity of the material should be combined with the exclusivity of each product. This is exactly what the masters of the past were known for.
