Aegyptus XIX

Hand-painted goose egg depicting a palm tree, a temple and a shrine. Woodturned oak base.

This Egyptian artifact’s inspired eggshell, Aegyptus XIX  depicts a palm tree, a temple and a shrine. It is part of the collection Kyanomorpha of hand-painted eggs.

Kyanomorpha is a series of painted eggs with two dominating colours, as the name suggests: kyano (blue) and white. The technique is similar to pâte-sur-pâte of the porcelain decoration. A short film was created during the process. Watch how these hand-painted eggshells were made: “Creating Forms”.

Eternity was in our eyes and lips.
Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch
Of the ranged empire fall! Here is my space!
Kingdoms are clay!
