Pysanky cousins: Sorbian eggs

The centuries-old Sorbian egg-decorating tradition is a wax-resist process similar to Ukrainian pysanky. Sorbian egg decoration features application of wax using the drop pull method with glass-head pins as well as with unique handcrafted tools made from natural chicken or goose feathers cut in simple geometric shapes. Sorbians (also known as Wendish or Lusatians) are an ethnic minority descended from Slavs who settled in today's eastern Germany and western Poland in the 7th century AD.
