Ukrainian Easter eggs in Balboa Park!
Pysanky are traditional Ukrainian painted eggs. They are preparing for the celebration of Easter.
Today in the Balboa park they made Easter eggs from the House of Ukraine!
Visitors to the Hall of Nations at International Cottages could see just how beautiful an intricate pysanka egg can be. The colorful patterns are created using carefully applied beeswax and a wax resistance process.
Children can also color in some of the drawings on paper.
Other traditional Ukrainian handicrafts were displayed at several tables, including the often armless motanka dolls. Motanka dolls are like talismans that are said to grant wishes, such as guarding a family or a happy, prosperous marriage.
At one table, I learned how an organization called Healing Scalpel helps provide medicine and services to people devastated by the war in Ukraine.
