Painted Easter eggs are a sense-bearing symbolic gift.
Symbols, which masters of different nations applied to products long ago, carried different meaning. Looking at Petrykivka painting with its fantastic flowering plants, fairy-tale birds that simply come to life on the product surface, there is a desire to exclaim: “How beautiful this world is! How it is necessary to live it forever!”
Combination of several paint colours on a pysanka means a wish of peace, harmony in the family, success in everything and, of course, strong health and long happy life. Easter egg (pysanka) is a wonderful gift to relatives and friends, men and women, children and adults that carries positive energy and hope.
