|Otherwise know as “Pysanky”, Ukrainian Eggs are an ancient
art form still practiced today. These are done in the traditional
way of using beeswax and dye in a wax resistant process on
handblown eggs. The symbols decorating the eggs have
special meanings, and can often mean many different things.
The eggs on my website are all made by me, and are a
mixture of traditional and contemporary, originals and
reproductions from books listed on my booklist. If you have a
question about a particular design, please email me.
Please check out my Gallery for photos of eggs, and the For
Sale link for eggs that I have listed for sale on other websites.
I will be adding more eggs on a regular basis so please check
Thanks for stopping in!
Legend of the Pysanka
Among Ukrainians there is a belief that the fate of the world depends upon pysanky. As
long as egg decorating continues, the world will exist. Should the custom cease, evil in
the guise of an ancient, vicious monster chained to a huge cliff, will encompass the
world and destroy it. Each year the monster's servants encircle the globe, keeping a
record of the number of pysanky made. Should there be too few, the monster's chains
loosen, and evil flows through the world. If there are many, the monster's chains hold
taut, allowing love to conquer evil.
