Easter Eggs From the Ukraine

Easter Eggs from the UkraineToday I went to a gathering of the American Women’s Club in Duesseldorf, Germany where Vera Busch gave a lecture and demonstration on: hand painted and dyed traditional Easter eggs from the Ukraine called “Pysanky”. I learned all about the method used to make them, and also a bit about the culture of the Ukraine.  I thought it might be boring but it was fascinating.  Each region of the Ukraine has it’s own geometric motifs and people have been decorating the eggs this way for hundreds of years. It takes about 6 hours to make just one egg. In the room sitting next to me were women of all different ages, from all parts of the world: Tunesia, China, USA, Germany, Japan, and Korea. I thought for a moment how special it was to be all together learning about the culture of another country. Talk about Cross-Cultural-Communication!
