These are photos I took of the display of traditional pysanky of the Lviv region at the National Museum of Decorative Arts located in the Pecherska Lavra (Monastery of the Caves). They are from the late 19th to early 20th centuries, for the most part; a few look more recent.

The photos were taken under low ambient light; I have edited the photos to show the pysanky individually..

These were pysanky made with natural dyes, which have faded, some severely.
