Do you know what a pysanky is? If you don’t it is a Ukrainian Traditional Egg with beautiful patterns and symbols.
In class, for Easter, we made one each. One side with whatever we want and the other side we had to learn about the patterns and make our own traditional pysanky!
What I find cool it that each color means something! Here is what they mean:
White– Purity, innocence and birth
Red– Happiness, life, hope, passion and the sun
Green– Spring new growth and hope
Light Blue– The sky with its life giving air, good health
Black– Eternity, darkest time before dawn
Brown– Mother Earth
Yellow– Light youth, happiness and the harvest
Purple– Patience and trust
This is my Easter egg!
My Ukrainian Easter Egg
This is a tradition egg
Mine had some original aspects of it but I also added some of my own things like some of the color choices and some of my patterns. I liked doing this egg because I love to do art.
The horn in the middle represents strength and leadership. I also did a cactus in there and I cant find what that symbol means. I also did some original designs.
I favorite part doing this was doing art because we don’t do it a lot in class so when we do, do it, it is really fun.
Happy Easter everyone!
