The beautiful, hand-painted Easter eggs are decorated with a unique pattern.

The Pysanky style is one of the traditional crafts in Ukraine with a history of more than 1000 years.
The word "pysanka" is derived from the verb "pysaty", which means "to write".
The method is similar to the batik pattern. The Easter eggs have a pattern painted with wax. This is to protect the places where no drawing is made. Repeats create a multicolored pattern.
Now the wax is removed, revealing the colors that were covered at each step.
