Item Name: UKRAINIAN EGG
Item Number: 944
Pysanky (PISANKA), also known as Ukrainian Easter Eggs derives its name from the word pysaty which means to write. Ukrainian women have been decorating pysanky (PISANKA) for centuries. In earlier times they were decorated in a very special and ritualistic manner. If the egg was not prepared perfectly, it would lose all of the magical powers it was intended to have. This particular egg is decorated with a sunburst of colors that radiate from the center with yellow, green, orange, purple and dark blue. Mesmerizing!
