Exhibition in Cleveland – Easter Eggs from Bela krajina / Belokranjske pisanice

The exhibit of the history of Easter Eggs from Bela krajina created by the Museum of Bela krajina, Metlika

The people from Bela krajina started to prepare for the Easter already in the winter time. For the intricate work of traditional painting of the eggs, they needed beeswax, a sharp tool, a candle, red and black coloring and a lot of patience. The eggs were mainly decorated by women, who gave the special Easter Egg to the men they liked. Later they gave the eggs to their godfathers and friends and this tradition continues to date.

The exhibition will open to public on April 19, 2018 at 7pm at the Slovenian Museum and Archives, 6407 Saint Clair Ave, Cleveland, OH 44103. Refreshments will be served.
