Abstract. Ukrainian spiritual artifacts have been forbidden long time because of inconsistency with established fictitious samples of the so-called «Byzantine-Moscow canonical style». The article deals with artistic, cultural and theological peculiarities of the icons of Podillia. This is argued of the fact that they have many common features with the artistic heritage of the Western Ukrainian region. Icons of Podillia is a distinctive sample of folk art, which makes it possible to study the lifestyle and moral and ethical principles of the land of Podillia, so there is a need to speak about them.

Keywords: icon, art, Podillya, canon, paracanon, iconology, iconography.
