This Egyptian artifact’s inspired eggshell, Aegyptus XIX is the perfect addition to your personal delicate collection of unique hand-painted eggs. This hand painted goose egg depicts a palm tree, a temple and a shrine during a ceremony. It is part of the collection Kyanomorpha. This piece will spark your imagination and drive you to explore all of the myths that can take shelter on an eggshell.
I started this set of eggshells in the summer of 2015, while the name was drawn from the two dominating colours: the blue and the white. The technique of miniature painting requires hours of stillness and concentration. This is a way of expressing my creativity and relaxing with short, tiny movements of the brush. During the process of producing these eggs, we have created a short film. If you would like to see how the hand-painted eggshells were made, watch our short film “Creating Forms”.
You can find the collection of decorated eggshells in the virtual exhibition:
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!
Antony and Cleopatra Act I, Scene V
