ABOUT THE CRAFT

The process of creating these intricately designed eggs involves using a wax-resist method to apply multiple layers of dye and paint. The resulting designs are often colourful and symbolic, featuring motifs that represent fertility, rebirth, and the renewal of life.

This ancient custom 

has been passed down through generations, and it remains an important cultural practice to this day.

Traditionally, this craft was exclusively practiced by women, but today, a select few have mastered the long and meticulous process required to produce these beautiful works of art. These hollowed-out eggs, adorned with vibrant colours and intricate symbols, are now displayed in galleries and exhibitions around the world.
