These one-of-a-kind Easter Eggs ornaments are hand-carved and hand-painted. They were imported from Russia exclusively for our store. Each egg features a different illustration of an Angel and also decorated on the back of each egg with willow twigs. Exactly one week before Easter, Orthodox Christians celebrate Palm Sunday, otherwise this holiday is called Palm Sunday or the Lord’s Entry into Jerusalem. According to the scriptures, when Jesus entered Jerusalem, people met him welcoming with branches of palm trees - as their King. In Russia palm branches were replaced with willow or willow twigs, on the eve of Easter they symbolize the coming resurrection of Jesus Christ. The branches sanctified on Palm Sunday bestow special strength and attach special importance to family’s amulet and the talisman.
