Easter egg carries a powerful symbolism

There were many stories told at Easter; most of them highlighting importance of Pysanky. The Easter egg carries a powerful symbolism for Ukrainian Catholics. The “Pysanky" represents the tomb (shell), the burial linen (egg white), and Jesus, the Son of God, (the yoke) Who raised from the dead and thereby conquered death! The “pysanky", at a glance, is the total representation of Easter:  The Resurrection and our New Life.  It is not surprising that the highly decorated Easter eggs, pysanky, (single egg: pysanka, from the word “pysaty" meaning “to write”), were so powerfully charged in traditional Ukrainian folk stories.
