When I was little, my great uncle used to make Ukranian Easter eggs, also known as pysanky. It was an art that he had learned from his grandmother, who came to this country from the part of Austria-Hungary that is now the Ukraine. I remember being amazed at the beautiful, intricate eggs he created and at the vibrancy of the colors and patterns.
Pysanky is a process similar to batik. The egg is progressively covered in wax to mask certain areas and the unmasked parts are dyed. Each progressive dying creates a darker color on the unmasked areas. Once the dying is complete, the layers of wax are melted away, revealing all of the colors protected underneath.
My uncle gave many of those eggs to my grandparents as gifts over the years. My grandmother, while a wonderful woman in so many ways, was entirely unsentimental and didn't save any of the eggs. But I remember seeing them looking much like these (and I even remember her having a similar tablecloth!).
