Eggs-cellent Work

Goose, duck and hens’ eggs are usually “blown” – which is when a hole is made in either end and the contents are blown out. The egg is then either carved, dyed, painted, appliqued or otherwise decorated. The art is popular in Eastern European countries. The renowned Russian artist and jeweller Peter Carl FabergĂ© made exquisitely decorated precious metal and gemstone eggs for the Russian Court. This example is from the Asian form of egg-decorating.
