A hand-written design of a saint, symbol, or holy day on a real chicken egg. Traditionally popular around Easter, Pysanky can be displayed year-round. Many designs available.

Availability: In stock (can be backordered)

Pysanky are a traditional religious craft from Eastern Europe, originating before Christianity entered the area. Since then, the eggs have been re-imagined with new imagery, most often about Easter. The process involves laying wax down on increasingly darker dyes, so that when all the wax is melted away, an intricate, colorful pattern remains. These beautiful eggs are then hollowed-out so they can be displayed in the home.

I learned this process from a woman who has been writing Pysanky for 25 years. This listing is for one egg of a “portrait” design of a saint, emblem, or holy day. If you have a preferred background (primary) color, please let me know. White will always be the lightest color unless another is requested. The design will only be on one side. The back will be reserved for filigrees or a phrase.

Please let me know the subject, and if there is a reference image you want me to use. I will default to iconography or existing liturgical art, otherwise. The eggs are hollowed out by hand with only one hole, and sealed in 3-5 coats of polyurethane. Each egg comes with a small plastic stand and a description of the imagery used. Each egg is made-to-order, and will arrive in approximately 2 weeks.
