Genuine turkey egg decorated in the Ukrainian Pysanky style. The patterns are created by applying melted wax in fine lines after which the egg is dipped into dye. The wax prevents the dye from coloring the waxed area. Each color requires separate waxing and dyeing steps. At the end, all the wax is removed, the egg is hollowed, and varnished to provide a durable finish.
