Pysanky (also spelled Pisanki) Easter Egg designs are traditional Ukrainian folk art designs which are decorated within simple geometrical forms such as circles, squares, diamond shapes and flowery repetitive vines and foliage, to name a few.

Specific colors and symbols are important with traditional folk-art decorating because each color and symbol has a special, usually religious, significance.

Designs on Ukrainian Pysanky Easter eggs are commonly derived from ancient traditional peasant art.
