    Cheese modeling is one of the authentic types of folk art in the Hutsul region (Ukrainian Carpathians). Its traditions is closely connected with cattle breeding, life and rituals of the inhabitants of the Carpathian mountains. From the immemorial times, shepherds near the fire, surrounded by forest spirits, sculpted the first cheese charms for their livestock, shaping them into a particular animal. Although the sculpting of cheese animals became a tradition in some Hutsul villages, still it remains the least studied form of Hutsul folk art.
