I am inspired by Easter time and want to share with you some wonderful inspirational ideas.;-)*
Did you know it?
Many other eastern European ethnic groups decorate eggs using wax resist for Easter.
I do the same here in Holland too.....because I came from Russia and every Easter and do it every year to keep the tradition,wich I admire so much!
And I has done the same...or maybe little bit different:-)))*
These simbol means for helth,sunshine and prosperity....via my own paintings.
A variety of styluses, from traditional to modern
Each region, each village, and almost every family in Ukraine had its own special ritual, its own symbols, meanings and secret formulas for dyeing eggs. These customs were preserved faithfully and passed down from mother to daughter through generations. The custom of decorating pysanky was observed with greatest care, and a pysanka, after receiving the Easter blessing, was held to have great powers as a talisman!
Isn't fantatsic idea?!..........
This image is a very big history of Russia.
Peter, the Great Egg, is a jewelled Easter egg made under the supervision of the Russian jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé in 1903, for the last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II. Tsar Nicholas presented the egg to his wife, the Czarina Alexandra Fyodorovna. The egg is currently located at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia, in the United States. (information via wikipedia)
This was made with some very special materials as: gold, diamond, platinum, rock crystal, enamel
And I do love also just simply farm eggs without painting too:-)))*
Here in the Netherlands ridiculously cold, but I hope that our Easter days would not white........:-)*
I HOPE it SO much......
