For those who celebrate, Happy Easter! I have been saving this post for today as it could not be more fitting – in the weeks leading up to Easter Sunday there have been nearly 300 two-and-a-half-foot-tall eggs around the five boroughs of New York City. These creations are scattered throughout the Big Apple as a part of the second annual Fabergé Big Egg Hunt. Last year’s event took place in London and at the completion raised raised $1.5 million for the Action for Children and Elephant Family charities.
I am in the love with Fabergé and have been since I first heard about them and they were the topic of one of my first blog posts. Each one created these hundreds of eggs was by a different famous artist. I have been so busy that while I have seen dozens of eggs over the past few weeks I have rushed by. However, I have stopped to take pictures of two “The Streets are Talking” made by Michael Owen and the “All-Ways New York” egg designed by Benjamin Shine. The current bids are $550 and $10,000 respectively.
