Pisanki - intricately decorated Easter eggs using wax, dye and incredible amounts of patience!

Ukrainian Easter Eggs (Pysanky) - its about time to get started if we're going to have them ready for Easter!

The central design on this pysanka are five flowers that stand alone (are not connected to each other). This is a representation of the Tree of Life. A plant in a vase standing on its own was also a highly abstracted version of the berehynia (great goddess).

A pysanka (Ukrainian Easter egg) decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax. Artist Ulyana Linda

    You can find pisanki in any Polish grocery store. They usually made of wood and not as pretty, but still give you a feeling of being back home :)

    Hey! Nice for You, ladies, to have personal memories with the Pisanki! I live in a small town in India, there is no question of a Polish grocery store - I source even "named" cheese & "non-artificial" vinegar with difficulty! :D But I am *so* tempted to decorate some eggs ... I'll start with some really simple techniques, like gluing punched shapes ... ;) Happy Easter to You all!
