MANHATTAN  – For the last 20 years, Sofika Zielyk has been making Ukrainian Easter eggs, known as “pysanky,” in her East Village studio, a craft she learned from her mother. Pysanky is an egg-decorating tradition that started during pagan times by the Hutsuls – highlanders from Western Ukraine. Zielyk’s art is on display at the Ukrainian Museum and the Embassy of the Ukraine in New York City.
