The butter lamb (baranek wielkanocny) is a traditional addition to the Easter meal for many Polish Catholics. Butter is shaped into a lamb either by hand or in a lamb-shaped mould. It is also sold at delicatessens, Polish specialty markets, and some general grocery stores at Easter time.
Frequently the eyes are represented by peppercorns and a white banner with a red cross on a toothpick is placed on its back.
