Pysanky eggs are part of an ancient tradition pre-dating Christianity. As the legend goes, the more colors on an egg, the more magic the egg contains. The storytellers say that somewhere in the world there is a giant serpent chained to the mountains. If the amount of painted eggs increases in the world from one year to the next, the serpent's chains are tightened. However, if the number decreases, the serpents chains are loosened. So the ancient art must continue to flourish!
These real eggs have been hollowed out and painted using a variety of techniques: wax resist, hand-painting, embossing, and perforation. Each color is symbolic and usually made with natural dyes. Choose one or choose a whole dozen.
