Traditional hand painted Easter eggs from Bucovina, Romania.

A tradition is to paint boiled eggs for the Easter meal, everyone grabs an egg and tries to break the others with it, before the actual hit each person confirms the rebirth of Jesus Christ.

This is an extremely old ritual practiced now only in a few villages in which they used special masks and dances to assure fertility and good will.
