Pysanka were traditionally created by women, usually alone at night. To impart the powers that the egg supposedly carries with it, the artist needs a calm, positive, state of mind.Each egg usually features one, or two dominant colors. The color depends on the situation for which the egg is created for. If it is to be given to a young child, or in celebration of a birth, the egg features a light color representing the bright future that lies ahead. Brown is used to celebrate the gifts of the earth, such as a good harvest, while green is to celebrate a renewal, or a new start.Along with colors, each design has its own special meaning, and use. Some designs were reserved for special occasions, such as the forty triangles design. This, unsurprisingly, features forty triangles, each bringing good fortune to a different tenet of marriage marriage in early Ukrainian society. Symbols like the pine leaf are used to impart longevity and health onto the eggs recipient. While a ladder, or steps are for a safe trip into the afterlife.
