Examples of designs used on the pisanki are found on pottery and household items in archaeological digs all over what Marija Gimbutas refers to as Old Europe.A good crafter will learn between 50 and 100 different singular symbols, and then learn the traditional combination designs that are comprised of those symbols and others. In ancient times they were made as talismans all year long for a multitude of intents and desires.These symbols, called znaki (plural - znak is singular) are the basis of the set of runes that comprise the Znaki. Fifty of the most common singular designs are used. Their meanings are given in the accompanying booklet, but remember - they serve as guides only. Their true meanings come from what they say to you. Packed in a red silk carrying bag.
