Here is a dark green geometric star with what looks like feathers jutting out from the center.
**The design is very new and my first attempt. It's more of a blanket European design**
Lithuanians call their decorated eggs "Marguciai" meaning Decorated egg. Taking a simple eggshell dyed and then just a blade to make all sorts of scenes and symbols is fascinating to me and something I am glad is now a part of my life.
The Lithuanian tradition of scratching eggs is different from other European egg crafts. Pysanky is multi-colored while Lithuanian eggs are only two colors, the color of the natural egg and the color it was dyed.
Scratching eggs is done with a simple box cutter blade. Not many people have continued this art and most eggs are in museums.
My eggs are for sale in the University of Pittsburgh Cathedral of Learning. The Cathedral of Learning is a collection of classrooms with designs and articles from each country. Lithuania is represented there.
Thank you for looking at this egg and please look at my other items!
If you have any question please contact me! :)
