Traditional Pysanky Eggs
- The egg has been described as having the perfect shape, a marvel of nature that has never been improved upon by man-made means. It is also the timeless symbol of rebirth, popular at easter throughout the world, when they are dyed and decorated in many styles. Arguably the most spectacular eggs are created in Ukraine, where the art of decorating eggs is a revered tradition called pysanky. Minute, detailed geometrics and traditional East European symbols are painstakingly applied in coloured layers through a wax resist method similar to Indonesian batik. Ours are direct from Ukraine, in brilliant shades of blue, on real, blown, delicate chicken eggs. Each one is an absolute jewel, a labour of love. Artisan made pieces. No two alike. Let us choose one for you. Stand not included.
