Pysanky of Mandalas
Egg decoration is an ancient art that transcends geography, culture, and method. Commonly known as "Ukrainian eggs," the wax-resist process called pysanky was well established throughout the Slavic regions of Europe long before the introduction of Christianity.
The mandala is not among the visual vocabulary of traditional Ukrainian pysanky, but these pysanky move away from tradition. The colors are muted, natural. The patterns appear complex, but being built of simplicity, they echo the satisfying completeness and wholeness of an egg itself, as well as the promise of infinitely varying life within it.
This set won 2nd place in the Minnesota State Fair Pysanky competition in August 2017.
