Item Name: UKRAINIAN GOOSE EGG
Item Number: 182
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 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 goose egg has a red, yellow and orange design in a diamond pattern on a dark chocolate brown background. It is a very elegant piece of art.
