"The Universe"


The egg is a symbol of the origin of the universe, life, immortality and resurrection.

An egg (Ukrainian pysanka) is a distinctive sign for identifying Ukrainians. This is a charm, the essence of which is laid in the ornament. This is metaphysics - there are no random signs here, every element, even the smallest, means something, carries its own energy.

In the Ukrainian tradition, as in many cultures of the world, the egg represents the Universe.
Each element of the ornament of this Egg has its own sacred meaning. According to ancient beliefs, the basis of the Universe, a kind of core of the universe, a symbol of the cosmos, a source of life and harmony, is the Sky. The sky in the author's composition is marked by an arch (hemisphere).
The central element of the composition is Ruzha (eight-pointed star), which symbolizes the sun — truth and justice, as well as victory over any evil. Wavy lines (infinity) are a symbol of water. Water existed even before the creation of the world, and it was from it that the sun, the earth and all living things arose - that is why it equates at the same time with eternity and the passage of time. Small rhombuses symbolize fertile earth. Triangles embody the idea of the trinity of the universe: sky, earth and water. The triangle also symbolizes father, mother and child. An important symbol on the Egg is the Tree of Life, which turns into a Berehynia Woman (the guardian women) with her hands raised to the sky - she is the strongest protector of all living things.
