A duck or a goose egg provides the basis of this work of art in miniature. The process involves emptying the egg's contents through a small incision after which it is painted in several stages. Firstly various shapes are drawn on, then it is covered with wax, and finally paint is applied in successively lighter colours as areas of wax are pealed away layer by layer. Red is the symbol of love & joy. The straight lines symbolize eternity... Thus each egg can be read as a story and its message and design are unique!! This is my priced possession from Romania... Hope you all are ready for the Easter weekend..
