My small collection of Ukrainian dyed eggs, also known as pysanky, is probably my most treasured Easter decor. This craft dates back thousands of years and eventually was adopted by Christians in Eastern Europe to symbolize the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The colors and patterns all have a special meaning, but I just think they're beautiful!
The process of making them is by drawing the design with melted wax onto the egg then placing in a dye. That procedure is repeated multiple times using progressively darker dyes and then melting the wax to reveal the intricate patterns. It takes a steady hand and much patience!
These few eggs are my feeble attempt at this ancient craft. I think I need a bit more practice!
