Traditional Ukrainian pysanky Easter eggs are meticulously decorated or drawn with dyes, beeswax, and a stylus or 'kystka'.
The term pysanky originates from the verb 'pysaty', meaning, "to write". The intricately patterned eggs are often styled after traditional Ukrainian embroidery. Fertile designs for the ushering in of spring.
