Is that chocolote?, or a painted egg?
But whatever it is, looks nice.

That is a hard boiled egg with a shrink to fit plastic decoration on it (which you buy and slip over the egg while still hot). The letters are, of course, in cyrilic and stand for Khristos Voskhrees (which translates to Christ is risen). Glad you enjoyed the pic, Gama!

from Good Friday service hymns:

"Upon the cross of Jesus
mine eyes at times can see
the very dying form of one
who suffered there for me,
and from my stricken heart with tears two wonders I confess:
the wonders of redeeming love
and my own unworthiness."

"What wondrous love is this,
O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this,
O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, that caused the Lord of bliss
To lay aside his crown for my soul, for my soul,
To lay aside his crown for my soul."

Lovely quote from the hymn; thanks angel-a!
