Description:

In 2022, Ukrposhta launched the Tenth issue of definitive postage stamps of Ukraine depicting Easter eggs of different regions of Ukraine. Pysanka (Easter Decorated Egg) is a cultural symbol of Ukraine, a unique work of folk art. Pysanka painting has ancient pagan roots. An egg, like a tree, was considered a symbol of the spring awakening of nature, the birth of life, the continuation of the family kin. Since ancient times, on the territory of Ukraine they painted eggs with magical signs associated with different beliefs: triangles, spirals, wedges, swastikas, tryrogs, which were later transformed into ornaments. Depending on the decorating technique, the painted eggs were called krashanky, krapanky, shkryabanky, malyovanky and pysanky. The latter were painted with wax and dyes. Ukrainian tradition attaches sacred significance to the production of Easter eggs. Nowadays, Easter eggs are the centerpiece of the Easter ritual.
