Wycinanki from the Kurpie region feature one color star-shaped designs ranging from eight to sixty-four repeats (gwiazda) or designs created on one fold (leluja). Łowicz-style wycinaki are distinguished by the technique of using a basic design, which is later embellished with overlaid cutouts of multi-colored paper. In addition to gwiazda that feature roosters and flower designs, these include floral designs that are symmetrical across a center vertical line (kodra). Other papercuts in this collection include such Polish folk art motifs as the Tatra mountains, mountain dancers, weddings, and the Madonna. In addition to traditional Polish papercuts, the collection includes Magdalena Nowacka-Jannotta's cut-paper works influenced by Southwest and Native American art with images of stylized lizards, snakes, thunderbirds, desert animals, kachinas, and Navajo motifs.
