First pysanka monument opened in OdesaOne more tourist attraction appeared these days in Odesa as Ukraine's southern region unveiled its first monument to pysanka, the Ukrainian decorated Easter egg.

Unusual pysanka, made of metal nuts of different sizes, was shown to public on May 3 in the town of Kominternivske. The author is the local artist Kyrylo Maksymenko, who is famous for turning metal scrap into art objects.

"There are about two thousand [of metal nuts]. The matter was urgent, so I had to buy them, but I usually pick up parts of my future sculptures just walking across the city and its suburbs," the artist told local web site dumskaya.net.

Metal pysanka is not the first art object authored by Maksymenko. In February the central street of Kominternivske was decorated with his "Heart of Love" composition. This May the sculptor promises to come up with "Head of Jacqueline Roque" – the monument to the last muse of Pablo Picasso.
