The viable power of pysanka (easter egg), its unique beauty, the

richness of ornamental compositions and of course, customs and

traditions, connected with it were put into the basis of erecting the

exposition of the new-built, the only in the world Museum of pysanka

in Kolomyia. The architectural construction is built in the shape of the

easter egg, as an original and peculiar advertisement of the museum. The

collection of the museum numbers more than 10 thousand works of this

decorative king of folk creative work.


For us, Ukrainians, pysanka is not only the symbol of life, good and

hope, but it is also the magic protection of our nation, its philosophy

and culture. Its almost impossible to understand it nowadays.


Pysankarstvo (the art of making easter eggs) goes back to the ancient

times and reflects the imagination of our ancestors about the world

around. The secret of the egg the germ of life, the same as secret or

the world tree, summons various associations for millenniums. It was one

of the greatest wonders for people in all times.


This ancient and ever young art absorbed the artistic completeness, the

richness of the plot compositions, the unique of the colour range.


Among the most important and the most most ancient symbols of pysanka

was sun the source of life, renewal and hope. Each region of Ukraine

has its characteristic connection of colours and compositions, put into

the certain system of information codes for ages. Today we read them as

an ornament, being charmed by its the richness and unique, interpreting

pysanka as the work of art. But the historical and moral aspects of

this ancient symbol of mankind is not learned much up to nowadays.


Today the development of pysankarstvo goes on thanks to the variety of

creators own manners. Their fantasy modifies the motifs and shapes,

polishing the technique of pysankas writing to its exquisiteness.

But the pure and deep-substantial source, from which pysanka was born,

is left aside on the spaces of the artistic fantasies.


The sole in the world Museum of pysanka serves for returning to the

spiritual sources and wisdom of the egg.


In the exposition of the museum you can see pysankas and decorative

eggs not only from all regions of Ukraine, but from Poland, Cheque,

Romania, Pakistan, Shri Lanka, China, India, Canada and the USA. The

language of their ornaments is the language of good, protection and

peace. Lets listen to it, lets connect our hands and hearts in a

symbolic circle, in the centre of which there is the most beautiful

pysanka of universe, whose name is the Earth.
