A really fun and stunning egg!

This is a traditional hand made Ukrainian Easter Egg, or Pysanka, as it is called in Ukraine.

Pysanky (plural) are made using a wax-resist (batik) method on real eggs (chicken, goose, or even ostrich!). They are dipped in various dyes and the designs are then drawn in wax using a special wax stylus. After the eggs are completed, the wax is then melted and removed to reveal the vibrant and colorful designs underneath. It is then varnished and drained of its egg whites and yolk.

Each design and shape in a pysanka has a symbolic meaning to it. For example, flowers denote wisdom, elegance and beauty. Poppies are the beloved flower of Ukraine, symbolizing joy and beauty.

These pysanky were all made by my mom. She has a natural talent for making these and is very devoted to her art.

These will be carefully packaged with great care (as they are real chicken eggs and are very fragile!).

If you have any questions or if you would like to have one custom made using a design of your choice please convo me! We’d be happy to work with you!
