11 Amazing Easter Eggs

Representing the rebirth of Earth and the start of new life, eggs are celebrated and decorated in a variety of countries and cultures throughout the world.

Perhaps some of the most impressive designs are known as Pysanka. These Ukrainian treasures (examples above) are hollowed-out eggs decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs; they are dyed with a method using beeswax to carefully create intricate patterns. Traditionally, dyes were made from natural ingredients, like dried plants, onion skins, and roots, and were created from secret recipes passed down from generations. Many Eastern European cultures also create elaborate egg decorations using beeswax.

Swirl designs can be painted on, or created by wrapping twine or tape around the egg before dying it.

Page 11, that is a Dalek, from Doctor Who, not R2D2 from Star Wars. So the Quote below it is from the wrong show/movie. Other then that they are all beautiful
