Pysanky: A Kaleidoscope of Ukrainian Heritage at Mingei International Museum

These vibrant and intricately decorated objects are pysanky – a timeless art form of highly decorative eggs deeply rooted in Ukrainian heritage. Pysanky comes from the Ukrainian word pysaty, meaning “to write.” The eggs, which contain designs embedded with deep cultural significance, are often gifted as wishes for good fortune and protection. They also serve as a symbol of the Ukrainian Easter Holiday and secular celebrations of spring, national pride, perseverance, and peace.
