Pascha Mold, Paska Form, Russian Orthodox Easter, Cheese Tvorog Mold

Paskha or Pascha (Russian Easter) is a festal dish made in Eastern Orthodox countries of those foods which are forofferden during the fast of Great Lent. It is made during Holy Week and then brought to church on Great Saturday to be blessed after the Paschal Vigil. The name of the dish comes from Pascha, the Eastern Orthodox celebration of Easter.
Paskha is a traditional Easter dish made from tvorog (farmers cheese, cottage cheese, etc.), which is white, symbolizing the purity of Christ, the Paschal Lamb, and the joy of the Resurrection.
In the Russian Orthodox tradition, pascha is usually molded in the form of a truncated pyramid (a symbol of the Church; also said to represent the Tomb of Christ). It is traditionally made in a wooden mould assembly called pasotchnitza that can be taken apart for cleaning; but more modern materials, such as plastics, are used nowadays.
The pascha is decorated with traditional religious symbols, such as the Chi Ro motif, a three-bar cross, the letters X and B (Cyrillic letters standing for XB which is the Slavonic form of the traditional Paschal greeting: Christ is Risen!), eggs, and a lance, all symbolizing Christs Passion and Resurrection.

Basement: 11 cm x 11 cm (4 1/3" x 4 1/3")
Height: 16.5 cm (6 1/2")
