A pysanka is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word pysanka comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax.

Happy Easter! Pysanka

  1. 1. Vegreville egg is a giant sculpture of a pysanka, a Ukrainian style Easter egg. It is the largest pysanka sculpture in the world
  2. 2. The work is built of an intricate set of anodized aluminum two- dimensional tiles congruent equilateral triangles and star- shaped hexagons fashioned over an aluminum framework
  3. 3. Cel mai mare ou de Paşte din lume poate fi găsit în Canada la Vegreville, Alberta. Construit în anul 1975, este alcătuit din triunghiuri de aluminiu. Peste 2.000 de astfel de triunghiuri, unite prin 7.000 de nituri, intră în structura acestui ou uriaş care are un diametru de 5,6 metri
  4. 4. Vegreville, a town in central Alberta, Canada. Founded in 1906, a large percentage of Vegreville's population is of Ukrainian Canadian descent
  5. 5. Acesta a fost proiectat de Ron Resch, un profesor de matematică din Utah
  6. 6. Oul de Paşte din Vegreville este decorat în culorile negru, auriu şi argintiu, fiind o reprezentare a ouălor tradiţionale din Ucraina, care poartă numele de Pysanka. Cele două ţări sunt strâns legate prin acest simbol păstrat cu sfinţenie. Oul din Vegreville are o lungime de 7,83 metri iş cântăre teş 2,3 tone. Localnicii îl denumesc „Pysanka”, cuvânt care în limba ucraineană înseamnă „ou încondeiat”
  7. 7. The current Pysanka Museum building was built in 2000 in the western Ukrainian city of Kolomyia. Previously the pysanka collection had been housed in the Kolomyia church of the Annunciation. The museum is part of the National museum of Hutsul-land
  8. 8. The central part of the museum is in the shape of a pysanka (Ukrainian Easter egg) and it has become a calling card of the city. In August 2007 the museum was recognized as a landmark of modern Ukraine.
  9. 9. The museum is not only shaped like an egg (14 m in height and 10 m in diameter), but parts of the exterior of and inside of the dome are painted to resemble a pysanka. Interior of the dome of the pysanka
  10. 10. At this time, the museum possesses a collection of over 10,000 pysanky. The permanent collection includes pysanky from the majority of the oblasts of Ukraine. Many are modern re- creations of traditional designs, but there is also a fine collection of older pysanky from the Ivano-Frankivsk region that date from the 19th and 20th centuries
  11. 11. There are many examples of both pysanky and other forms of decorated eggs from other countries (Romania, Belarus, Poland, the Czech Republic) and more distant lands (Sweden, USA, Canada, France, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, India)
  12. 12. An even larger pysanka has been proposed and designed, but not yet built. I saw this on line last year – a plan to build a huge pysanka and “multifunctional complex” in Kyiv. This would be the world’s biggest pysanka, if ever constructed. The series of structures would be built on an island in the Dnipro
  13. 13. Village of Bratkivtsi, L’viv oblast. It was constructed to celebrate the turn of the last Millennium and 2000 years of Christianity. There is a statue of the Virgin Mary inside the big pysanka
  14. 14. Kiev Pechersk Lavra, also known as the Kiev Monastery of the Caves. Together with the Saint Sophia Cathedral, it is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  15. 15. The sphere sculpture of 3000 paint Easter eggs made by children and gifted to Kiev Pechersk Lavra on October 22, 2011 in Kiev, Ukraine
