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 gold and brown cross in the center with gold leaf scroll as a trim mixed with cream, brown and red tones.
