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 yellow sun burst design in the center with cream, green and red accent tones on a dark brown background. There is a yellow, orange, green and red diamond pattern trim.
