  note   Easter Eggs as a symbol of new life
         consider Paschal Egg etc.
  hx> Ukrainian traditions retained the crafting of
      the most exquisite Easter eggs decorated by
  a host of complex techniques called
  PYSANKA from PYSAT = to write
  colored eggs lacking major decorative features
  are called KRASHANKA from KRASKA = color or stain
  PYSANKA EGGS are achieved mostly by using a
  "batik" like technique or protecting areas
  of the egg with wax which when removed exposes the
  surface to various natural coloring agents
  myth> the decorated egg as symbol of life and of
        fertility precedes Christianity by millennia and
  was introduced to the "west" mostly from the "east"
