Together with the birds in the spring ritualism everywhere in everything by Slavyansk peace widely adapted different magic actions with the eggs. For the duration of entire spring occurred the coloring of eggs - [pisanok], [krashenok] - and different games with them. Church Easter calendar to a considerable extent shielded the archaic essence of the rites, connected with the eggs, but the content of the painting of [pisanok] it takes away us into deep antiquity. Here there are the celestial deer, and the picture of peace, and the set of the ancient symbols life and fertility. In our museum ethnographical collections are stored thousands of [pisanok], which are been, perhaps, the greatest mass heritage of heathen ideas.
