Manor College spotlights Pysanky, Ukrainian Art said to keep away evil

The Manor College Ukrainian Heritage Studies Center is the home of more than 200 pysanky, a Ukrainian artform involving dyes, eggs and wax.

From Manor College:

There is a legend that claims there is an evil monster chained in a cave. Each year, his henchmen go out in the world to see how many pysanky were written. in years with many pysanky, the chains are tightened, but if only few are written, the chains are loosened. By writing psyanky, we are ensuring the monster stays in chains.
