Protection of the Family

Zara Picken created an illustration inspired by Ukrainian motanka dolls, to highlight the UK’s Disasters Emergency Committee and the actions they are taking to support Ukraine. The motanka doll is an amulet, one of the oldest symbols of Ukrainian culture. Motankas were traditionally part of the rituals of life and community – originally designed for fertility and procreation, they have become associated with healing and protection of the family.
