Easter egg

Ukraine Proposes to UNESCO to Recognize the Easter Egg Decoration as an Intangible Cultural Heritage.

It is proposed to add Ukrainian Easter egg decoration, the practice of preserving the kobzar-lyrist tradition, and the “white on white” embroidery technique to the list.

It is noted that Ukraine’s submission of three nominations to UNESCO’s lists, including in the midst of a full-scale war unleashed by Russia on February 24, 2022, in an attempt to destroy Ukrainian national identity, tradition, history, and uniqueness, highlights the intangible cultural heritage not only as a source of spirituality but also as the foundation of Ukrainian resilience.

The submission was initiated by the Museum of Pysanka (Easter egg) Painting in the city of Kolomyia (Ivano-Frankivsk region), the National Union of Folk Art Masters of Ukraine, the Congress of Ukrainians in Estonia, and the Ukrainian Center in Tallinn.

Ukraine has been a member of UNESCO since May 12, 1954.

The list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in Ukraine includes eight entries, which is approximately 0.69% of the total number of World Heritage sites.
