Title: Ukrainian Easter Eggs (Pysanky) Online Exhibit
Description: When speaking of Ukrainian Easter eggs-“pysanky”, they are said to be “written”, as opposed to being “painted” or “decorated”. This is because the ornamentation is most commonly applied with a writing tool (called “kistka” or “pysal’tse”) through which melted beeswax flows in the same manner as ink flows through a fountain pen. (The very name “pysanka” is derived from this technique and comes from the Ukrainian verb “pysaty”, meaning “to write”.)
