Demonstration with Christina Abramowski in the Main Lobby

Pysanka is an Easter egg decorated using a wax resist (aka batik) method. Its name derives from the Ukrainian verb “pysaty,” meaning “to write.”  The design motifs on pysanky date back to pre-Christian times and many date to early Slavic cultures, and others to Paleolithic times.
