Horse Themed Ukrainian Easter Eggs ~ Pysanky

Ukrainian Easter Eggs or Pysanky are decorated using a wax-resist method called Batik.  There are many different design elements used in creating a single egg.  My favorites include flowers, birds and of course, horses.  The horse symbolizes strength and endurance.  In ancient times it was thought that the horses of Dazhboh, the sun god, pulled the sun across the sky and because of this, the horse is also the symbol of wealth and prosperity.  My family loves to create these beautiful eggs using a simple Ukrainian Egg Decorating Kit.  They are also available to purchase and make amazing decorations and gifts for you and your horse loving friends.  Take a look below to see some of my favorite horse themed Ukrainian Easter eggs...
