Sunflower of Love Brooch by Erstwilder
Life, love and faith in something bigger than oneself. This egg is a symbol of the sun, itself a symbol of the miracle of existence.
From Time Magazine:
As the war in the Ukraine continues into the Easter season—with the Catholic and Protestant churches celebrating Easter on April 17, and Orthodox Easter, as celebrated by many Ukrainians, falling on April 24—a spotlight is shining on the Ukrainian Easter tradition of decorating Easter eggs known as pysanky. Decorating them has become a gesture of peace, as the war has brought new meaning to an old tradition that dates back to pre-Christian/ Pagan times.
