From Shell to Symbol: Art of the Ethnic Easter Egg
Triangles and Crosshatching
Decorated by Betty Pisio Christenson, 1983-1990
Almost all of the eggs designed by Betty Pisio Christenson contain triangle designs. They represent the Christian Holy Trinity, which consists of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These eggs also feature crosshatching designs that symbolize fishing nets, as Jesus Christ was known as the "fisher of men".
