Painted Easter eggs are an eternal symbol of the holiday and traditional Easter gift

Easter is a sacred and very symbolic holiday, which awakes an echo in not only of church members  hearts’, but probably in hearts of all people, regardless of their views. It is so because this day is associated with domestic warmth, family traditions, joyful excitements and belief in a genuine miracle. The brightest attributes of this holiday, of course, are Easter eggs, which are called in Ukraine as pysanky or krasanky. It is interesting that egg painting was traditional for our ancestors back in pre-Christian times. An egg was considered to be a symbol of the Slav fertility and revival. Ornaments, which were applied to it, also had a profound symbolic meaning. Painted Easter eggs or pysanky should necessarily have been presented to beloved ones, nearest and dearest as well as the signs, coded in painting, were to become wishes and amulets.
And nowadays Easter eggs are gifts with a profound symbolic meaning!

In former times, approach to manufacturing of these products was very careful: only original eggs of young hens were chosen as the basis as well as preparation of ingredients and paint itself could be compared to a magical ritual. Today, a lot has changed: in order to keep Easter gift longer (a blown raw egg is still very fragile material), masters use wood, however, pysanka meaning remains the same: it is the sacred Easter gift, with the help of which we express our care, attentiveness and love.

Why wooden Easter eggs are a truly unique Easter gift?

  • An experienced turner makes every egg from light wooden grades. As a rule, pine or other coniferous trees are used. Well-turned wooden egg is dried and thoroughly sanded before it comes to artist’s hands.
  • The finished wooden workpiece is processed in a special way before painting, so that the paint is applied smoothly. Every master of Petrykivka painting has a favorite colour scale, which he works in, so the artist himself/herself determines colour of the future masterpiece. Sometimes master’s mood affects it.
  • And the egg has already a background - red, yellow, blue, green, brown by now - there are neither rules nor restrictions! Often, if a wooden egg has a beautiful wooden texture, it is not coated with paint, but it is painted directly on bear wood!
  • Painting of Easter egg is a magical process! The egg gradually blossoms with incredible colours, on which fairy-tale birds, proud cocks, mysterious owls appear. Petrykivka painting is very diverse! Every master has his/her own style, which is passed from a daughter to a mother during generations. Gouache based on honey are traditionally used for painting.
  • The painted egg is varnished from 3 to 5 times. Varnish gives the product shine and protects painting from damage.
    Every Easter decoration, created by master’s hands, is unique! It is impossible to find two absolutely identical products! There is an artist's signature on every Easter egg. You will know the master’s name, who made an Easter souvenir for you.
