Easter egg, as a piece of art
2007-02-24 - 2007-04-22
These days for most of us the Easter egg is primarily a reminder of our beloved spring religious holiday: Easter. The tradition of painting and decorating eggs, however, dates back earlier than the celebration of Easter.
Several ethnographic researches were carried out on the origins of egg painting, studying the symbolism of the designs, as well as the history of superstitions, myths and traditions relating to the decoration of eggs.
