Ukrainian Eggs

UK1

I love the attention to detail that it takes to paint a Ukrainian egg. You need a steady hand, talent and lots of patience. Painting these eggs is a craft I don't have the steady hand for, but I can take photos of these intricate pieces of art utilizing my own talents. I love the fine lines of each piece and the color coordination. I have learned that each egg is symbolic and has special meaning. My neighbor has been giving my family these eggs every year for about thirty years. I look forward to receiving more each year, and am happy I could do them some justice my sharing their sophisticated beauty with others.
