Making Pysanky eggs is an ancient art, which is typically recognized for its symbolism around the time of the Easter season, is an artform that is practiced all year. This art uses what is called a “wax-resist method,” meaning that in areas wax is applied, dyes will not adhere to the egg. The lines and images created on the egg are symbolic of life and are “written” on the egg.
