 TRADITIONAL PYSANKA 

 A celebration of the proud traditions of Ukrainian-Canadians, whose contributions have helped shape Canada’s multicultural heritage.
button-description500.png

Colourfully captivating, an intricately written pysanka is a breathtaking celebration of life and rebirth! It is more than an Easter egg—each one is a work of art that is steeped in tradition, with carefully layered colours and centuries-old motifs that are as meaningful as they are mesmerizing. Through its colourful artistry, this egg-shaped coin pays tribute to Ukrainian-Canadian culture through an art form that has become a cherished part of Canada’s vibrant multicultural heritage.

The egg-shaped reverse design by Canadian artist Ann C. Morash weaves together patterns and symbols that capture the artistry of a Ukrainian Easter Egg. Positioned within four triangular segments are golden blades of wheat, which convey best wishes for harvest and the soul of the clan. Beneath this overlay, the field is filled with the geometric figures that represent the sun and stars, to symbolize life, fortune and growth. These are framed by bands of waves that celebrate water as a life-sustaining element and harmony, which are in turn framed by evergreen boughs positioned along the edge, to symbolize eternal health and youth.
