Item Name: UKRAINIAN GOOSE EGG
Item Number: 190
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 and brown poppy flower with green stem center design on a chocolate brown background. There is a diamond pattern trim with cream red and gold tones. This is a cheerful design that would display beautifully.
