Passover and Easter Greetings

The Big Egg Hunt, #119
 donated by HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall:

T'is the Paschal Season, when somber prayers and sacred rituals accompany massive feasts abundant with eggs.   Passover and Easter seem to revolve around these ovoid symbols for birth, rebirth and Spring!

Have you taken in the Big Egg Hunt 2014 yet?  Previously strewn around the 5 boroughs, these enormous artistic creations are now on view at Rockefeller Center through April 25th for their final bow.
They will be auctioned off at Sotheby's on April 22.

If you do not have time to see all or most of these eggs-cellent creations in person, please visit The Big Egg Hunt website or buy the book at various locations.

The event is sponsored by FabergĂ©, and is 100% charitable, raising money for the Studio in a School in NYC and conservation efforts for Elephant Family

Happy Big Egg Hunting - 

With best wishes for Passover and Easter -
