Eggs have long symbolized life and good fortune. And, in Lithuanian tradition, this special significance is increased when the egg is decorated! In ancient days, it was believed that if you buried a decorated egg at your home’s threshold or in your fields, it would bring good luck and plentiful crops. A decorated egg was always a welcome gift and prized possession!
I love the intricate and beautiful designs that were used in traditional egg decorating. I created this design, drawing from the inspiration of that long-standing tradition. I used the colors from the Lithuanian flag to complete this bright Easter design.
