At the beginning of the 20th century, every Ukrainian village was famous for its unique pysanka (decorated easter egg). People have long been reverting an egg as a source of life, and therefore they were concerned with cooling dumplings and Easter eggs with great respect. Pre-cooked eggs, wax, dyestuffs, pencil, and when the evening arrived and all around was freezing, tireless women sat down at the candle. A quiet holy prayer was read and lay on the white surface of the egg signs of fertility, sprout, fiery solar power, life-giving rain. Pysanka was created.
Afterwards, already consecrated, she saved her from bad fortune, evil eye, illnesses and fires.
Take your pysanka in your hands! Let your little house shine a little sun, which will bring you health, harmony and love.
