Sunday Feelings - HOPE














































'Easter is the most important religious celebration in my country.
Its traditions go beyond the Christian dogmas, to pagan rituals, myths of creations and symbols of life.

Romanian painted eggs.
They say that  Virgin Mary came to see her crucified son. She carried a basket with eggs, which she laid at the foot of the cross while praying for Christ. His holy blood dropped on the eggs and reddened them.
According to this legend, there should be no other colors used to paint the eggs for Easter but I believe that  the meaning of Easter is preserved, no matter what colors we might choose. In Romania the tradition of decorating eggs is ancestral.In old times a painted eggs was believed to have magic powers and their preparation involved special rituals.  A Romanian painted egg tells you a story, if you know how to read it. Among the many stylized motifs you’ll often find the tree of life, the sun and the Star, the cross, the rooster, the snake and oak leaves, waves, spirals and much more. Each egg is unique. Each egg is special. '

Hi Wind, you have captured with "passion" the message and traditions of Easter. Image 4 is a well composed image with an amazing contrast of colours and light. For me, Image 3 speaks to me most on a spiritual level and asks what is my response. A nice image to end with that is significant to the variety of subjects you chose to blend in this post.
I was going away this weekend, but opted not to for a variety of reasons and instead will be going to celebrate the resurrection.
Happy Easter, J

bogdan said...

Drept sa iti spun, mie imi plac ouale rosii, si nu alta culoare.
Dar pana la urma asta e o arta, nu?!

Toate cele bune si un sfarsit de saptamana minunat.
