Photographer's Note

We celebrated Easter last Sunday. It is the custom here to dye and exchange eggs on that holiday. It is a part of the tradition for the Bulgarian women to paint the eggs on Thursday or on Saturday before the Easter, but never on Friday. The first painted egg has to be mandatory red as a symbol of the blood of Christ.
There are a lot of special techniques in egg-painting. Some people decorate the eggs with various ornaments and stamps or paint the eggs with wax and cotton, which turn one ordinary egg into a real masterpiece.
