Українські писанки

Писанка – абсолютно унікальний витвір. Вона вражає своєю витонченістю, довершеністю і багатством композиційних варіантів, орнаментальних елементів та мотивів. Напередодні Великодня Музей Івана Гончара представляє анімаційне відео та пропонує познайомитися ближче із писанками різних історико-географічних регіонів України. Основу ролика складають писанки, що відписані за взірцями із особистої колекції Івана Гончара, яку він формував протягом сер. 50-х – кін. 80-х років. Відтворювали писанки співробітниці музею – майстрині Лариса Головня та Надія Білоткач. Фондова колекція писанок, зібраних Іваном Гончаром, складає 392 одиниці.Фотограф: Asha KoraВідео: Терещенко Іван, Новосельцева ЮляМузика: гурт The Doox

#Pysanky - a Ukrainian art form that has become a staple of Easter celebrations in Ukraine and America. Crafting this kind of eggcellence, you see, takes patience, discipline and days of work -- not to mention a metal stylus, wax, dye and varnish. Pysanky means ‘to write’ in Ukrainian. These eggs document Ukrainian traditions and history.
Creating the Ukrainian Easter egg requires multiple steps, including immersing it in a jar of dye, where it sits for 10 minutes -- until the color seeps into the part of the shell not covered with wax. Varnish is applied to protect the egg, keep the colors from fading and give the shell a glowing sheen. After getting drawn on and dipped and dabbed, this pysanka finally gets to rest - on a bed of nails, which allows the varnish to dry (see the last picture). The art form has transcended Ukraine to become part of an American and local Easter tradition.

History lesson time:
A long time ago on a continent (not so) far away, the Celtic ancestors of the modern day Irish spent several generations roaming the Pontic Steppe -- the region just north of the Black Sea in what is now Ukraine -- before shoving off for places further West.
At one point, nearly all of northern Europe was inhabited by Celtic tribes. Celtic geographic names survive in nearly all modern European languages; for example, variations of the word for the Danube River. This is also the reason why both Spain and Ukraine have historical regions called Galicia -- both the Spanish Galicia and the Ukrainian Galicia were named in more ancient times by Celts that lived in those regions....

Slainge! Будьмо!

For Ukraine, the new flights represent the gradual expansion of affordable travel to the countries of Europe. In May 2017, Brussels eliminated visas for Ukrainian citizens visiting the Schengen area for a period of up to 90 days.
