Random detail written by Jana April 16, 2009 The Ukrainian egg CatGirl painstakingly dyed., originally uploaded by mind on fire. CatGirl has an eye for detail and loves working in miniature. She spent hours on Easter Eve crafting the detailed patterns of this Ukranian (Pysanky?) egg. I feel awed to have such talent in our family.

Thanks for sharing! My great grandmother also created these, and my Mom is keeping some for me at her home currently. I am too concerned about how fragile they can be – particularly around toddlers. I do think pysanky is the right term. Reply daisies April 16, 2009 - 7:26 pm wow. super impressed ~ that is so beautiful :-) Reply [kɹeɪ̯ɡ̊] April 16, 2009 - 8:27 pm Oy, that is amazing. And yes, it’s called “Pysanky”. The world’s largest pysanka is near my hometown in Alberta where there are many Ukranian immigrants. So many, that Ukranian food is a standard part of the provincial diet – as Mexican food is in California.

Cat Girl’s is especially intricate and lovely. Reply Vajra April 17, 2009 - 10:47 pm Cat Girl is a true artist. She has a magic touch and her world view is remarkable. Such beauty.
