Sunflowers on Turkey Egg Pysanky
This unique turkey egg was created using a wax batik method called pysanky. Portions of the natural shell were preserved in the creation of this pysanky. The sunflowers represent new life and growth. The diamonds are wisdom and the crosses are for salvation. The egg is blown out and measures about 3.5 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter. It comes with a clear acrylic stand.
As always, each pysanka I create is made with love and prayers.
Each pysanka is coated with varnish to protect it from water damage. However, the varnish will not protect the egg from UV light or breakage. It is best to display your pysanka out of direct sunlight. Since the pysanka is fragile, it is also advised to place it in a safe place.
If you find the egg is “slipping” in the stand, use a small amount of wax (such as paraffin or candle wax) around the rim of the stand. This will keep the egg in place and it won’t harm the pysanka.
