<ul><li>For centuries the artists have helped to preserve the wonderful culture of Easter Egg making. With creative vision, amazing patience and using only a few simplistic tools and their hands, they carefully transformed natural resources into original and charming crafts which are believed to bring health, happiness and prosperity. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Pisanki are typically made to be given to family members and respected outsiders. To give an Easter Egg is to give a symbolic gift of life, which is why the egg must remain entire. Furthermore, each of the designs and colors is likely to have a deep, symbolic meaning. Traditionally, the designs are chosen to match the character of the person to whom the egg is to be given.
