This listing is for one egg; in the last picture, it is the last egg on the right.

Wouldn't a grouping of these eggs just be a beautiful addition to your home for the Lenten season? If you want some custom made, just convo me. A group of 3 or more is simply elegant as you can see in the last two pictures.

A Lenten Pysanka. I thought a series of simple black and white eggs would bring attention to the serious nature of the Lenten season. Many of us start pulling out our gorgeous pysanky eggs prior to the arrival of Easter..but if you recall, these are Easter gifts, to be given to loved ones on Easter morning. The bright colors signify the joy of the Resurrection. I thought a somber, yet beautiful, reminder using black and white eggs during Lent would help Christians recall and be thankful for our Lord's atoning death on the cross.

Since Lent is a season of penitence, reflection, and prayer, worship during this time is solemn and restrained. The somber colors of purple and black replace the brighter white and green of the Epiphany season. Flowers are generally removed from the sanctuary. Songs of praise are removed from the liturgy until Easter. Just so, maybe we should display a simple black and white basket of Pysanka as our own reminder of Lent.

I will be offering a series of these Lenten eggs. Each is beautiful with a lovely balance of black and white. They are not glazed with a high gloss liquid resin, but rather, sealed with a matte finish polyurethane...again, a restained beauty. This egg is a turkey egg, much larger than a jumbo chicken egg.
