Ukraine’s glorious sweep of fascinating visual productivity, from the handsomely decorated pottery and intricately forged metals of antiquity to splendid icons and textiles that emerge in the medieval period as part of a complex identity the shaping of which offers part of the foundation for understanding today’s horrific events.
