Spring Break Ukrainian Easter Eggs; The Art of "Pysanky"
Time & Location
About The Event
Famous all over the world, these colorful easter eggs “pysanka” are an over 2000 years old tradition. Eggs were chosen for decoration as they embodied great powers. In ancient times the egg symbolized the release of the earth from the shackles of winter and the coming of spring with it’s promise of new hope, new life and prosperity. Nowadays Easter eggs are symbols of resurrection and a promise of eternal life. And the Ukrainian legends state that as long as pysanky are decorated, goodness will prevail over evil throughout the world.
These eggs are not meant to be eaten, they are given as gifts, exchanged with friends and used as decorations all year around. Exchange the pysanka with others as a token of love and friendship and beam with pride as you say “I made them”, for the egg carries considerable proof of the effort involved in designing it and therefore makes a cherished gift.
