1008-pysankas panel made by a pensioner from Mykolaiv


After being retired Volodymyr Bonk from Mykolaiv, former driver, started training in pysanka (Easter egg) painting. 

It took the man over 8 years to collect 1008, sufficient enough to make a panel. Every pysanka differs in ornaments, hardly one can find identical ones.

Volodymyr Bonk underwent no pysanka painting course. Being a child he was just watching his mother painting eggs before Easter every year.

To make the panel and save eggs from damage the master strengthened holes with sequins and bound the eggs with fishing line.
