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 green diamond pattern throughout the middle of the egg in addition to the cream, orange and red designs on a dark brown background.
